Our project, Transforming Cinema, aiming to bring a transgender film festival to Sheffield, was one of five finalists in the National Lottery Fund and ITV’s The People’s Project in 2016. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in winning the funding we had hoped to secure in order to put on a film making course as well as a national festival, but we are still determined to make Transforming Cinema happen!
As part of the competition the two runners up were able to apply for a smaller amount of funding for their projects. We were awarded £5,000 from The Big Lottery Fund, which we will be using to run Transforming Cinema this November 2016.

ITV produced a video on Transforming Cinema as part of The People’s Project. You can watch it below.
Here’s what MD Claire Watkinson, Chair Bella Qvist and our friends and supporters had to say about Transforming Cinema. The video was created during the two weeks of campaigning.
