Our VR & Interactive Exhibition showcases stories from around the world told using the latest technology and innovative techniques. Experience the lives of trans people in Japan through the nostalgic style of early gaming, share eight LGBTQI+ individuals in Australia’s intimate memories of their mother’s kitchens via an interactive documentary, observe a mother and son discuss homophobia in Russia in 360 degree video, and lots more. No prior knowledge required – the SQIFF team will be on hand to guide your experience!

The exhibition will launch with a special event on Thursday 3 October 5.30- 7.30pm and will be open Friday 4 October 12-5pm and Saturday 5 October 12-3pm.

Click here to sign up for the Exhibition Launch on Thursday 3 October. Free and unticketed for other Exhibition days. Please note you may need to join a waiting list to try out some projects when you come along.
