From 6:15pm to 8:15pm

A evening of screenings and discussions with influential filmmaker Jake Graf.

Jake will be talking about his career, his films, transgender life in the 21st century and his role in the BFI Flare LGBT Filmmakers’ Mentorship programme.

Screenings include:
Dusk (2017), follows one man’s struggles in imagining how his life might have been had he not chosen the path he had.
Chance (2015) follows one man’s a chance encounter that jarringly reawakens him from his isolation.
HeadSpace (2017) gives a rare and intimate glimpse into the trials and tribulations faced by trans folk on a daily basis. Released in February 2017 the short went viral, with over 2million view worldwide.

Jake is a writer, actor and director based in London, whose first four award winning films, 'XWHY', 'Brace', 'Chance' and 'Dawn' have all been nominated for The Iris Prize, and have screened at over 100 festivals worldwide. His first Youtube video, 'What It's Like Being Transgender' reached 450K views online, and he has this year written for GNI, QX and FTM Magazines, as well as Cosmopolitan online. Jake was listed on The Independent's Rainbow List, and The Guardian's Pride Power List for his activism and visibility within the trans community.
