SQIFF Queer Filmmakers Group

September 30, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

CCA hall in front of the Theatre door with a group of people wearing masks and chatting, with two people in the middle hugging.

Are you a queer filmmaker wanting to meet other queer filmmakers and develop project ideas together?

The SQIFF Queer Filmmakers Group is an initiative to bring local queer filmmakers together for monthly two-hour group sessions to network and support each other in the development of film projects. These sessions will be facilitated by a SQIFF member. We aim to grow the group in the future to become a collective of queer filmmakers in Glasgow.

For this session, L.I.P.S. (Lesbians in Peer Support), a youth group that Glasgow Women’s Library ran from 2000 to 2006 will join us to screen ‘Dykes in the City’, a trilogy of three short films produced in collaboration with GMAC in 2001. The event will include a panel discussion with the filmmakers.

The group is open for any level of filmmaking and we really encourage people just starting out in the medium to come along.

We got enough funding to run the monthly SQIFF Queer Filmmakers Group sessions until June 2024, hope to see you all in every single session. Moreover, during one of the sessions later this year, we will run a short films pitch contest and we will be giving £500 to contribute towards the production of two films.
