Films by Transgender Writers and Directors

Films written and/or directed by people who fall under the transgender umbrella (including nonbinary, genderfluid, and agender people, among others).

I feel this is the most important threshold to cross when it comes to producing better media about trans people...and maybe even for us, if people can imagine that!

Directors and writer-directors are listed first, then written-only films. (At this point, Brace is the first writer-only film listed.)

A fair few of these are hard to find, at least in the US.

Suggestions are so welcome it hurts.

(NOTE: A writer and/or director's inclusion on this list does not equal a recommendation or endorsement of their works or views.)
