Preview: Gender Reel – Posted by Natalie Hope McDonald

What is gender? That’s the big question the creators of Gender Reel, the East Coast’s only multimedia festival addressing gender issues, are asking when it kicks off Sept. 9th through the 11th at venues around town. Non-conforming, variant and transgender and transsexual experiences will all be documented using visual art, film and other mediums that include 16 artists, three installations and 27 films in this first-ever festival of its kind in Philly.
