A tilde exhibition by BHO VÉ showing in the Pride Gallery from 1 May – 30 June 2024.

TIL·DE (NOUN\’TIL-D \): A SYMBOL (~) INDICATING EQUIVALENCY OR SIMILARITY BETWEEN TWO VALUES/APPROXIMATIONS.

tilde: an approximation, an in-between-ness, beyond absolutes and rigidity. The essence of the indefinable nature of gender.

Established in 2014, tilde is a community-led, international film festival based in Melbourne, and one of only a handful of trans and gender diverse (TGD) film festivals in the world. tilde showcases and supports the work of TGD filmmakers and artists, and works that have TGD content. It also provides a crucial opportunity for TGD community members and allies to gather and connect with one another in a safe and supportive environment.

SEEN/SCENE exposes the often unseen artistry of TGD Cinematographers, Intimacy Coordinators, Grips, Producers, caterers, all working with actors and directors behind the scenes. These images create space for greater representation. Accompanying texts from TGD filmmakers and artists, recount their experiences in the film industry and their hopes for the future.

SEEN/SCENE is a celebration of TGD people, their work in film and screen, an amplification of their voices and experiences, and their dreams of a future where trans lives matter.
