Scottish Queer International Film Festival
Documenting and Archiving
Sat 30 September 2023
Still We Thrive
This event is all about queer histories, past and present. It explores a range of approaches to documentation and archiving.
The programme alternates between shorts of around 5min and ‘longer shorts’ of 10+ minutes. The first films are about American and English histories of the 80s-90s. The next couple document millennial queer experiences surrounding advancements in technological communication. And the latter films tell of QTIBPOC resistance, love and solidarity.
This screening will conclude with a panel hosting River Seager of I Am a Cyborg: Conversations About Queerness and Anime, and Campbell X of Still We Thrive on the importance of documenting queer experiences.
Curated by Nat Lall.
- Discussion of transphobia, homophobia, violence, jail, Section 28, bullying, colonisation, racism, slavery, physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, violence, abduction, sex work.
