STATE OF THE INDUSTRY
More than half of the transgender professionals working in the Canadian film and TV industry report experiencing adversity related to their gender identity while working on their last project.
We conducted a survey of transgender, non-binary, two-spirt, and gender-diverse folks in the Canadian film industry. 63% of these respondents took steps to delay transition or conceal their gender identity due to the risks associated with being out in the Canadian film industry.
At Spindle Films Foundation, we envision a film and TV industry that welcomes and celebrates diverse storytelling as valued and integral. We’re motivated by the power and creativity of community, and we invite you to join us in this industry-wide transformation.
Your generosity helps us support and amplify emerging transgender filmmakers and continue working to transform the Canadian film and TV industry.
Donations support our emerging filmmakers, their mentors, our community initiatives and advocacy work, and our operations and administration.
