GA(Y)MERS

October 10 @ 12:45 pm - 2:25 pm

Three school girls stare at a boy with vicious smiles on their faces. One of the girls is tightly holding a brown school bag. They are in a school bathroom, and the boy looks worried and upset.

There is a freedom that comes with gaming; an ability to exist in another realm without necessarily leaving the real world. For some the realm of a game exists as an alternate reality and for others it synthesises with the physical world. For queer and trans gamers, it can function as a space to trial and error other bodies. It can be a space to transition. And with that comes various highs and lows. From moments of ecstasy to steep learning curves to some uh…‘reality checks.’

GA(Y)MERS showcases a series of shorts on gender and gaming, including Jamie Jankowic’s a woman on the internet. The screening will be followed by a Q&A on the films and the importance of virtual queer spaces.

Curated by Nat Lall. This short film programme will also be available to rent online from SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel 2 to 10 October.

Tickets are on a pay what you can sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8. To book, click the button below or call the CCA Box Office on 0141 352 4900.
