Trans director Yance Ford won a Special Jury Prize for Storytelling at last year’s Sundance Film Festival for “Strong Island,” his intimate and intense documentary. The film will screen 7 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Lightbox Film Center (formerly International House). The event is free with an RSVP.

MJ Kaufman is one of American theater’s most insistent and crucial new artists — one whose work exists in a time when risk, dare and sociopolitical polemic is a necessity.

Out filmmaker and Temple University film professor Lauren Wolkstein co-directed the fantastic and hypnotic drama “The Strange Ones” with Christopher Radcliff. The film, based on the co-directors’ 2011 short of the same name, is currently on DIRECTV and will be available on iTunes Jan 5.
