LGBT Health & Wellbeing Community Filmmaking

October 6, 2019 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Free - £8
A white person bathed in red light and shadow looms out of the dark, grinning with light playing about them.

LGBT Health & Wellbeing is a charity promoting the health, wellbeing, and equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Scotland and providing support, services, and information. Two of the organisation’s groups have recently created collectively-made short films, which we will showcase at this event. Return to the Closet? was created as part of a collaboration between Luminate, LGBT Health and Wellbeing, artist Glenda Rome, and participating community filmmakers. Luminate commissioned the film with support from LGBT Health and Wellbeing. This is a documentary exploring issues around care for older LGBT people. Everything Just Collapsed is an experimental short reflecting on stigma and survival by Tim Knights in collaboration with participants of The LGBT Mental Wellbeing Collective. Come and watch both movies and join in an open discussion on the process and value of community filmmaking.

Tickets

In order to make SQIFF more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you are honest! Our ticket sales go towards supporting the vital work of LGBTQ+ filmmakers, artists and organisers.
