Small Trans Film Club

Once a month the Small Trans Library Dublin hosts a free film club of films by, about and for trans people.
If there’s a film you think we should screen or you are a trans filmmaker with work to share, please get in touch!

After each screening, a trans artist is also invited to make a short 8-page response zine which will be printed and shared at the next month’s film club. It could be anything from reflections on the film, the vibes in the room, dogs you saw on the way to the screening, or pure fanart.
You can find the full archive of zines here and instructions on how to print a zine at home here.
