〰️ KEYNOTE WITH TRANSFORM FILM FEST PRODUCERS
In 2017, three women quietly came together and started what would be Transform Film Fest 2018. It was super easy to organize, we had unlimited funding, very pleasant internet interactions with total strangers, and we did so with no trolls proclaiming “a women’s film festival is dumb” . Twas a wonderful joy, the end. SAID NO ONE EVER. Learn more about why we started this fest and who we are.
