SQIFF 2019
SQIFF Shorts: Queer Scotland

Sat 5 October 2019

We present a round-up of the excellent, idiosyncratic new queer filmmaking produced within Scotland.

We welcome the return of filmmakers who have screened at SQIFF before including Michael Lee Richardson, Wei Zhang, Siri Rødnes, Eleanor Capaldi, and Natasha Lall, and are excited by a whole host of new names bringing very impressive work packed with stylistic invention and stimulating ideas. Gender roles in ballet, a queer reimagining of a working men’s club, sending naked pics via dating apps, Chinese mythology and human binaries, trans masculine culture, BSL poetry, LGBT people in the asylum system, and loads more are explored in our 2019 Queer Scotland programme.

We hope to be joined by a number of the filmmakers for a Q&A.
