2019 submissions open!

Submissions for the 2019 Festival are now open. We’re using Film Freeway to accept submissions this year. To find out more and submit your film, click here. We are charging a relatively small amount for submissions for the first time to help support our work and make SQIFF more sustainable. However, you can submit your film for free if the director (or equivalent) is LGBTQ+ and a person of colour, Deaf, Disabled, and/or working class. We also pledge to pay screening fees to all films selected through submissions. If you have any issues submitting via Film Freeway, please contact info[at]


Our 2018 Festival trailer was created by artist Natasha Lall. Click here for more about Natasha’s work.
