SQIFF Shorts: Weird and Wild

December 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:10 pm


An encounter with a strange funeral procession in Bethnal Green, a family losing the plot after meeting their son’s trans girlfriend, a middle-aged gay man seemingly eerily affected by a forest camping trip, and queer feminist gangs doing battle in a violent, dystopian present. Weird and Wild consists of work by filmmakers expert in creating tense atmospheres and queer moods whilst recounting their gripping tall tales.

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.

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.

The Brother (4m)
Dir: Kai Fi’ain, Year: 2018
On a bleary eyed morning in Bethnal Green, you never know who you might bump into.

Calamity (22m)
Dir. Séverine De Streyker & Maxime Feyers, Year: 2017
France meets her son’s girlfriend for the first time. She loses control…

Skogen (The Forest) (20m)
Dir. Magnus Mork, Year: 2018
A middle aged couple is tenting in a forest. Bjørn seems more used to the setting than Lars, but they are both influenced by the nature. Surrounded by the trees they talk about big and small questions in life. A lovestory.

Swarm of Selenium (23m)
Dir. Maude Matton & SJ Rahatoka, Year: 2018
In the surreal dystopian present, two queer feminist crews cohabit the shells of an abandoned malt factory. As a troubling pattern begins to emerge from their mouths in the form of shattered glass, all are shaken, but some are hit harder than others. Through dance, visual work, and anti-work, they merge forces to try to care for one another and combat the insidious violent process which seems to increasingly come from within.
