Scottish Queer International Film Festival
Opening Night Shorts
Wed 6 October 2021
Audio description available
Our festival opens this year with the first of our 2021 Scottish Shorts programmes, including multiple works giving a taster of the many themes to expect from the festival.
Featuring a poetic film in British Sign Language (Affirmation #6), selections from queer Black artists from Fringe of Colour (Ixwa Blue, Space 2: We’ve Come A Long Way, black queer nature poem for khadijah (and all of us)), sweet musings on trans life in Glasgow (You can run), and lots more. We hope that there will be something for everyone in our multifaceted queer community on our opening night.
Curated by Nat Lall. We hope to welcome several of the filmmakers for a Q&A. All ticket holders are invited to join us for a drink at CCA after the screening.
