SQIFF Schools: Out (CCA)

December 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free
out-cole-ryals-06

So much of young people’s experience of sexual and gender identity in the present day comes via the internet. However, the old pain and awkwardness of ‘coming out’ to friends and family remains the same. This new documentary from French director Denis Parrot combines the phenomenon of online queer culture with the intimacy of young people’s revelations about themselves. Out presents a collection of compelling videos posted online by young LGBTQ+ people, showing us their experience of telling loved ones about their identity.

Followed by a discussion hosted by LGBT Youth Scotland about the experiences of LGBTQ+ young people communicating their identity to family and friends and finding acceptance. The event is kindly sponsored by LGBT Youth Scotland.

This event is free and only open to schools. The film and discussion are suitable for S1-6. Please email helen@sqiff.org to book spaces.

 

ACCESS

Film mostly in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available.

Film relies on visual material to convey ideas but has a lot of voiceover and commentary, so is 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.
