Rémy Huberdeau / Canada / 2014 / 45 ' / English

TRANSGENDER PARENTS is about love, life and kids after a gender transition. It shares the struggles and strengths of several trans women and trans men navigating different stages of parenting: from pregnancy, through raising infants, toddlers and teenagers.

Moritz Mayerhofer & Asparuh Petrov / Bulgaria - Croatia - Germany / 2014 / 16 ' / English

SHORT SYNOPSIS: Father is a subjective personal project. It came to life because a small group of people were moved by the concept and decided to make it a reality. Perhaps, when one is watching this film, there is no need to think about the communism, the period of transition, and everything connected to it. These stories transcend Bulgaria, they could take place in other geographical locations and periods of transition. Furthermore, it is precisely these types of considerations that give meaning to our personal experiences.
