2016 Art and Change Grant – Iris Devins

Iris will finish post-production on her short fictional film, After the Date, which follows the romance between Nate, a straight cisgender man and Emma, a photographer who is transgender. Iris’ film will show the relationship between trans women and straight men in a positive light, beyond social stereotypes and film clichés – a narrative which is rarely seen in film or television. Contributing to the growing movement of trans stories told by trans people, Iris also plans to organize a tour featuring other transgender artists in hopes to develop a network of trans filmmakers.
