Born in Ecuador, Felix Endara is a transgender New York-based filmmaker, programmer, and arts administrator whose films have screened at festivals including Berlin, Frameline, Outfest, NewFest, DOC NYC, and Mill Valley. His films document the preservation of LGBT historical spaces, highlight the work of activists who challenge prejudice and discrimination, and act as disruptive forces of the insidious narratives that deny the humanity of marginalized communities. In addition, his work as an independent programmer and arts administrator draws on his values to champion art that functions as a catalyst for social change. Felix has worked with renowned organizations who support artists, including P.O.V., Cinereach, Detroit Narrative Agency, Tribeca Film Festival and Tribeca All Access, New Orleans Film Festival, Human Rights Watch Film Festival, New York Asian American International Film Festival, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, North Star Fund, and the Open Society Foundations. He’s currently writing a script for a trans romantic comedy about gentrification, coming soon to a Cineplex near you.
