SQIFF 2018 -Sliding Scale Ticket Price

SQIFF 2018 Sliding Scale: What Should I Pay?

In order to make SQIFF more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price 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!

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 box office to let them know so it can be used by someone else.
