Celebrate gender diversity with Sam Berliner’s FLOAT, an experimental short film shot completely underwater of trans and genderqueer folks swimming to music by trans musician Rae Spoon. It has been called “stunningly celebratory” (Frameline) “exuberant,” “beautiful,” “peaceful,” and “abstracted.”
Sam Berliner is a Bay Area-based filmmaker and animator best known for his engaging and accessible films about gender non-conformity. His award-winning short films have screened at over 100 film festivals around the world. When not actively making films, Sam is the festival director of Translations: the Seattle Transgender Film Festival.
OUR 10th ANNIVERSARY
Time flies when you’re having fun! Can you believe that our 10th anniversary cruise is just next year in 2017? To celebrate, we’re planning an exotic tropical cruise with our newest cruise partner, Royal Caribbean, aboard their ship Freedom of the Seas.
We had such a wonderful time cruising the Western Caribbean last year, that we will be visiting the Eastern Caribbean this time around, including ports of call in St. Kitts, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Labadee.
Endless adventures await in Rome. With two and a half thousand years of history, artand culture, it is no wonder Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past with visits to ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Or people-watch while sipping an espresso in a quaint cafe. The leitmotif of Roman cuisine is simplicity, with dishes based on few and fresh ingredients, best embodied by sitting in a piazza sampling antipasto al fresco while watching the people stroll by. After dinner in Rome, only one food is excepted from the no eating while walking rule: gelato.
