Irish Trans Filmmakers

Expanding on our reading list of Irish trans writers, the Dublin Small Trans Librarians provide here an ever-growing list of trans filmmakers and film workers from or residing on the island of Ireland. We hope this benefits people looking to watch more Irish trans films or find trans filmmakers to create new work with.

This list is certainly incomplete and updated periodically with the knowledge we have. If you are an Irish trans filmmaker or know one, suggestions are welcome via the contact form below or any of the Small Trans Library Dublin‘s platforms!
Note: We want to highlight trans contributions to all parts of filmmaking, above or below the line. It’s much easier to find out about trans writers, directors and actors than MUAs, PAs, editors, gaffers, sound engineers and more, so please don’t hesitate to reach out based on role or experience.
