SQIFF Closer: Real Boy

October 2, 2016 @ 8:15 pm - 9:45 pm

Real Boy 3-2

‘I just want to be loved by my family,’ says Bennett, a nineteen year old trans man. ‘But for my family, it’s not as simple as that.’ Ben’s mum is having a hard time coming to terms with her child changing. His dad and sister no longer speak to him. But thanks to social media, Ben meets a whole network of people who support him, including best friend Dylan and Joe Stevens, a trans musician. With their support, Ben comes to terms with his identity and begins to build bridges with his family. Real Boy is raw and breathtakingly honest, creating a sense of awe at the resilience and courage of its subjects.

Preceded by the presentation of our Festival awards, the SQIFFies. We are delighted that one of the film’s stars Joe Stevens will be joining us for our 2016 closing event.
