October 21 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free - £10

This screening is a raw look into queer immigrant stories. Who I Am Now follows a conversation between two teammates, Tariq and Denise, talking about their trans refugee identities and sharing their stories about friends and family. No Hard Feelings presents a love story between Parvis, the son of exiled Iranians, and Amon who has fled Iran and is seeking asylum in Germany with his sister. This screening powerfully captures intersectional queer and refugee identities, with the two films complementing each other in exploring aspects of the family we’re born intro and the families we make from our friends.

Presented in partnership with LGBT Unity Scotland, a community-led group providing essential support to LGBTQIA+ refugees, asylum seekers, and other migrants. Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and National Lottery funding from the BFI.

Curated by Indigo Korres.
