Brand new transgender arts festival, SPARK, arrives in Manchester this July with a multi-disciplinary celebration of the work of trans and non-binary artists. Festival curators Trans Creative have teamed up with British Film Institute programmer, Zorian Clayton, to co-present a programme of local and national short films on tour from this year’s BFI Flare LGBT film festival.

Screening for the first time in the north, the programme focuses on positive, empowering stories based around family, transitioning and gender expression. The line up includes: Anne-Marie O’Connor‘s autobiographical Mum, Pallavi Somusetty’s film about a non-binary person in India, Escaping Agra and Sarah Jenny Johnson’s documentary of transitioning, Eli. Trans Creative’s Artistic Director and co-creator of Mum, Kate O’Donnell, will host the evening and a Q&A with Eli afterwards.
