About the movies:


The Script -- 15 min // USA

Director: Brit Fryer, Noah Schamus

Producer: Colleen Cassingham, Jess Devaney

Blending personal interviews with dramatized genre recreations, THE SCRIPT explores the complicated relationship between trans and nonbinary communities and medical providers around gender affirming care. With a playful approach toward experimentation, the film examines the nature of performance and the limits of language — and invites its participants and its audience to envision a liberated, gender-expansive future, beyond the injustices of the current moment.


MnM -- 15 min // USA 

Director: Twiggy Pucci Garçon

Producer: Colleen Cassingham, Jess Devaney

MnM is an exuberant portrait of chosen sisters Mermaid and Milan, two emerging runway divas in the drag ballroom community. Celebrating their joy, siblinghood, and unapologetic personas, the film explores the power and beauty of being nonbinary in a community that prizes gender ‘realness.’


How to Carry Water -- 15 min // USA 

Director: Sasha Wortzel

Producer: Colleen Cassingham, Jess Devaney, Anya Rous

HOW TO CARRY WATER is a portrait of Shoog McDaniel — a fat, queer, and disabled photographer working in and around northern Florida’s vast network of freshwater springs, the state’s source of precious drinking water. For over a decade, Shoog’s photographs have transformed the way fat people view themselves and how a fat phobic society views fat bodies. Bringing Shoog’s photography to life, the film immerses audiences in a world of fat beauty and liberation, one in which our bodies — including bodies of water — are valued and sacred.
