The Friend from Tel Aviv at NewFest

Posted & filed under Latest News.

The Friend From Tel Aviv screens at NewFest 2015 October 22 and 26. Visit NewFest’s website for screening times and ticket information.

Directed by Federica Gianni, The Friend From Tel Aviv is about a trans artist and immigrant living in New York who gets a surprise visit from an old friend and flame.

I share the screen with the wonderful Nitzan Krimsky and Karen Giordano.

The TransShors program includes powerful shorts that illuminate and challenge the ways in which we perceive transgender identities.

For a full lineup check out the TransShort program.

The Friend From Tel Aviv premiered at Palm Springs ShortFest, and recently screened at Outfest in Los Angeles. In addition to NewFest, upcoming screenings include St. Louis International Film Festival and San Francisco Transgender Film Festival.
