SQIFF 2019
See Me Proud presents: Mental Health Shorts

Fri 4 October 2019

We know that mental health issues disproportionately affect LGBTQIA+ individuals and communities, who often experience difficulties in accessing support.

To create space for discussion and representation of these topics, we’ve curated a collection of insightful and powerful shorts in partnership with See Me Proud. Topics covered include depression, anxiety, loneliness, irrational thoughts, living with bipolar disorder, medication, and queerphobia encountered whilst obtaining treatment. The films incorporate a diversity of identities and styles, including animation, experimental, documentary, and sci-fi.

Followed by a discussion on themes raised in the films with See Me Proud. With refreshments sponsored by Clever Kombucha.
