Announcing SQIFF 2023!

SQIFF is back at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), Glasgow from 26-30 September 2023, with a 5-day festival packed with a curation of the best international Queer films, alongside art installations, a craft fair, a filmmaking workshop and more.

After a short break in 2022, the festival is back and stronger than ever, with a new team and a brand new TikTok account. SQIFF 2023 will open on 26th September with the ever-popular Scottish Shorts, celebrating local filmmakers’ home-grown film projects. This year’s festival will host a mixture of Queer classics and new releases, with a focus on new filmmaking talent. 

This year’s artwork is by Konstantinos korakonero, a Glasgow based artist who has created a comic-book universe for SQIFF 2023, with a diverse range of characters bringing energy and fun to the front of this year’s festival. They say that “SQIFF feels like an incredible opportunity for queer filmmakers and audiences to be brought together, and something that is much needed and appreciated in Glasgow at the moment. The artwork is inspired by that feeling of vibrant and explosive queer creativity that I’m excited to experience as an attendee this year.”

Access measures are at the forefront of SQIFF’s festival as always, with audio description, live captioning, BSL interpretation, closed captioning and more. Throughout the festival, there will be a quiet room to take a breath between films and chill out with hot drinks, sensory toys, and comfy seating. You can find a full list of access measures in the accessibility tab of our website, and you can message us on instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, or email on [email protected] with any access requirements and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.

SQIFF 2023 will run from 26-30 September at CCA, Glasgow. The full programme will be announced on 8th September on our website.
