SQIFF Shorts
You Gotta Have Faith + Discussion

Sun 6 October 2019

Short films exploring what it means to have faith as a queer person today. A seemingly pious Hasidic man living a secret double life faces a challenge when his two worlds collide. A chaplain from Cheshire sets up a helpline for gay farmers and is inundated with calls. LGBTQIA+ people in Nepal use a Hindu festival as a medium to appear in public. Plus more compelling stories in this captivating selection.

Join us for a discussion after the screening with playwright and author of The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, Jo Clifford, LGBTQIA+ Muslim charity Imaan, and Rev. Jane Clarke from Glasgow’s LGBT+ Metropolitan Community Churches.
