Workshop: Queer Storytelling with Catherine Gund SOLD OUT

September 30, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event is now FULLY BOOKED – sorry for any disappointment. Please see our list of other fabulous free filmmaking workshops taking place during SQIFF 2017. There are also still tickets left for our screening of Catherine’s new film, Chavela.

Founder and Director of Aubin Pictures, Catherine Gund is an Emmy-nominated producer, director, writer, and activist. Her work focuses on sustainable social transformation, sexuality and gender, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, and other social justice issues. She works actively with numerous organisations to this end and co-founded Third Wave Foundation, which supports young women and transgender youth, and DIVA TV, an affinity group of ACT UP/NY. She was founding director of BENT TV, a video workshop for LGBT youth. Her most recent films include Chavela (2017), Dispatches from Cleveland (2017), and Born to Fly (2014).

In this unique day-long workshop, Catherine will explore her approach to making powerful, character-centred films, from shorts to features, and her commitment to stories about LGBTQI communities. She will screen excerpts from her work and give feedback on your own projects in development.

In partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute. Ages 18+ only.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with lift to UWS Room. Accessible toilets available. If you would like to attend and require BSL interpretation, please email info@sqiff.org and we will book this for you.
