SQIFF18
Sqiff Shorts: Queer Scotland

Sat 8 December 2018

Our 2018 Scottish shorts programme contains another exciting range of work by and about LGBTQ+ people and communities within our (un)fair land. Among the imagery and themes included are the search for community and intimacy, trans embodiment, anti-queer conditioning, erotic fantasies in rural landscapes, lost love, spinsterhood, tarot cards, crayfish, and witches! Featuring a spectrum of narrative and experimental styles encompassing melodrama, film-poetry, animation, collective filmmaking, documentary, and diaristic footage.

We hope to be joined by a number of the filmmakers for a Q&A.

Films in English, Scottish Gaelic, and British sign languages with English language subtitles/captions. The Q&A will be BSL interpreted. Hearing loop available.

A mixture of film styles with around half relying on visual material to convey ideas and half conveying ideas via dialogue or voiceover. The large majority of films are English language. So, the screening is 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.
