2019 Festival Submissions Open

SQIFF 2019 will take place in Glasgow 2nd to 6th October and submissions are now open. We’re using Film Freeway to accept submissions this year. To find out more and submit your film, click here.

We are charging a relatively small amount for submissions for the first time to help support our work and make SQIFF more sustainable. However, you can submit your film for free if the director (or equivalent) is LGBTQ+ and a person of colour, Deaf, Disabled, and/or working class. We also pledge to pay screening fees to all films selected for the Festival through submissions.

SQIFF is interested in showing work created by and about LGBTQ+ individuals and communities. We are open within this to all subject matter, styles, and film lengths. We screen all films in the festival with English language subtitles or captions for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences. We also put on some screenings with audio description. We therefore appreciate films which integrate captioning and/or audio description.

The deadline for submitting your film is 2nd July. If you have any issues submitting via Film Freeway, please contact info [@] sqiff.org.
