QWPS presents: Queer The Screen

December 8, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Queer Words Project Scotland presents a preview of some of the stories and poems featured in We Were Always Here, an anthology of weird, queer Scottish writing being published in February 2019 by 404 Ink. Experience a selection of stories and poems influenced by film and pop culture from some of the movers and shakers of queer Scottish literature including Kirsty Logan, Heather Valentine, and AR Crow. The readings will be interspersed with a selection of short films influenced by poetry and prose, and followed by a panel discussion – hosted by Michael Lee Richardson – on the crossover between books, poems, and film.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.

Films in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. Readings and panel discussion BSL interpreted.
Films rely on visual material to convey ideas with a lot of poetic voiceover, so are relatively accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

CCA has good access for wheelchair users. Click here for more details on venue access.

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.


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. If you have a free ticket and can no longer use it, please contact the relevant venue box office to let them know so it can be used by someone else. For more info on what you should pay, click here.
