Films by Transgender Writers and Directors

Films written and/or directed by people who fall under the transgender umbrella (including nonbinary, genderfluid, and agender people, among others).
Directors and writer-directors are listed alphabetically first, then written-only films.
Some of these films are more available than others, but many are online, sometimes for free! For an easy way to find some good ones to start with, try sorting by streaming service, "Film Popularity" or "Average Rating-- Highest First."
Suggestions are so welcome it hurts.
(NOTE: This list aims to be a comprehensive and objective resource, so a writer and/or director's inclusion does not equal a recommendation or endorsement of their works or views. Especially harmful and/or offensive films have warnings/disclaimers added in their notes.)
