GERMANY'S TRANSGENDER FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS 2013


By Sabrina Samone, Transmuseplanet
One thing I’ve grown to love since I created TransMusePlanet, is the countless transgender people I’ve chatted with from around the world.  Anyone with a website or blog can see where the majority of their viewers are coming from; TMP list goes as such: United States, Germany, Russia, Brazil, Turkey, France, Canada, United Kingdom, Namibia and Austria. I’m always tickled to hear responses and to hear what life is like in other parts of the world for transgender people, especially intrigued how things are in African countries, so Namibia is a pleasant surprise in my top ten this week. Maybe in some way I’ve connected with long lost relative on the west coast of Africa, mmm.... I’m often sent things pertaining to the transgender community, especially from Russia, France and this week from Brazil. I’m a big movie buff, I mean crazy movie fan, and in fact my ideal way to go would be with a bowl of ice cream and a good old sci-fi film. I was tickled to receive the list of winners for the recent German Transgender Film Festival and because I know there are many other movie buffs out there I had to share.  So get comfy, get your snack and let’s see what was hot in this year’s Transgender Film Festival in Germany this year.

With her Jean Serberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and decides to pass herself off as "Mikael," a boy like the others but different enough to catch the attention of leader of the pack Lisa (Jeanne Disson) who becomes smitten with him.
