Ticketing

We have decided to use a sliding scale for ticket prices at SQIFF 2017. Tickets for screenings at CCA, Glasgow Women’s Library, and Transmission are a choice of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8 (see individual listings for ticket prices at other venues). Choose what to pay based on your circumstances. We won’t ask for any proof of your situation.

We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. This allows us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it most and make SQIFF affordable to everyone alongside sustaining the Festival and supporting queer filmmakers.
