Delivering inspiring, challenging and dynamic content, this year’s program is host to critical acclaim and an expansive geographic footprint that speaks to the value of diversity that is central to the festival. tilde 2015 aims to celebrate a range of identities, move and inspire through the sharing of stories, expand and capture the imagination of community. 2015’s program includes shorts, documentaries and features from countries including Australia, Turkey, China, Uruguay, and the Philippines. tilde audience members are invited to come along not only for a cinematic experience but also a weekend of celebration, conversation and community!
The program includes a specially curated short documentary session, featuring Arrernte Sistergirls Share Their Journey, a follow-up short film about two Central Arrernte Sistergirls produced specially for tilde by Bent TV.
“These are stories of resistance, transformation and survival, providing insights into both the familiar and the unknown”, says Festival Director Liz Alexander. “A common humanity shines across the struggles experienced in fighting for a world where all the beautiful variations of gender are seen and celebrated.”
More than just a film festival:
tilde also believes in the importance and power of bringing people together over the festival weekend. After all, tilde at its heart is a community festival, and was born of the desire to build community and connection through sharing and celebrating film stories of gender diversity. 2014 audience feedback reflected the value of bringing people together across the communities. Parties and DJs will accompany select sessions – tilde invites audience members to connect, hang out, come early, stay late and celebrate!
