QWPS presents: Queer the Screen

Sat 8 December 2018

Queer Words Project Scotland presents a preview of some of the stories and poems featured in We Were Always Here, an anthology of weird, queer Scottish writing being published in February 2019 by 404 Ink. Experience a selection of stories and poems influenced by film and pop culture from some of the movers and shakers of queer Scottish literature including Kirsty Logan, Heather Valentine, and AR Crow. The readings will be interspersed with a selection of short films influenced by poetry and prose, and followed by a panel discussion - hosted by Michael Lee Richardson - on the crossover between books, poems, and film.

Films in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. Readings and panel discussion BSL interpreted. Hearing loop available.

Films rely to some extent on visual material to convey ideas but have explanatory and expressive dialogue and voiceover, so are relatively accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact access@sqiff.org.

We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact access@sqiff.org.
