SQIFF 2019
SX presents: What Brings You On Here?

Fri 4 October 2019

Filmmaker and poet Ross Wilcock presents films focusing on the experiences of gay men with online dating.

A history of gay sex and cruising from the 70s to the internet takeover of today. Dissatisfaction with emotionless encounters and the yearning for something more. Meeting up with men online as a way of expressing your queerness when you’re not out. The sometimes all-consuming obsession of people with their phones. Grindr, swiping left, hooking up, insecurities, getting tested, and a bit of hot sex are all contained in this challenging selection.

Curated by Ross Wilcock, who will host a discussion after the screening with director Sean McInally. In partnership with SX, Sex Health Wellbeing for Gay & Bisexual Men provided by Waverley Care.
