About Us

SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) was formed with the aim of adding to the exciting and growing amount of queer film stuff happening around Scotland. Since 2015, we have held an annual festival in Glasgow alongside providing year round events across various locations. Our goal is to get people watching, talking about, and making more queer films. We want to screen movies that people might not otherwise get a chance to see and to create inspiring and informative events alongside challenging inequality and barriers to accessing the arts. For more info on SQIFFʼs ethos, please see our Equalities Policy.

SQIFF is not-for-profit and run by our Festival and Programme Coordinator with support from our committee. We are an organisation by and for LGBTQ+ communities. If you have any ideas for events or requests for films, please get in touch.

We welcome any and all feedback on our events and our approach. If you would like to make a comment, please email info [@] sqiff.org or you can find us on Facebook and Twitter.
