Statement on the COVID-19 crisis

Scottish Queer International Film Festival 2020 will return from 14-18 October in Glasgow. We are currently planning for SQIFF to go ahead as a physical event. We are working on adjustments to the event to consider access for people particularly affected by the pandemic, especially Disabled communities. We are also making a contingency plan to hold the whole festival online if this becomes necessary to keep our audiences safe. As always, the wellbeing of our LGBTQIA+ communities and the accessibility of our events to those most marginalised from the arts are our main concerns.

Film submissions are now closed. If you have any queries about SQIFF, please get in touch with us at info[at]
