SQIFF’s Mini-Series of events including two screenings and a workshop is happening this month.
SQIFF is going through a development process this year, and we won’t be holding a festival this year in the same capacity as previous years. However, we will be hosting a Mini-Series of events this October at the CCA in Glasgow.
First up on the programme is the LGBTI+ Saturday Social in partnership with Luminate, a chance for older LGBTI+ people to meet friends old and new, and to enjoy some creative activities together. This screening will be a fun look into older queer narratives with short doc Looking Back with Pride and Keyboard Fantasies, a time-travelling tale of mystical musician and vocalist, Beverly Glenn-Copeland.
Next up will be Immigrant Stories with LGBT Unity Scotland, a raw look into queer immigrant stories, featuring Who I Am Now and No Hard Feelings, both films which explore aspects of the family we’re born intro and the families we make from our friends.
For some industry experience, book onto our workshop on d/Deaf approaches to Filmmaking with Jamie Rea, which will create a networking experience for deaf and hard of hearing queer filmmakers of all levels of expertise.
These events will be a great opportunity for us to get plenty of feedback from you to support our development. Please make sure to subscribe to our mailing list through the form at the bottom of the page to get more information on how you can help us during this process.
SQIFF’s Mini-Series will be on 15th and 21st October at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow. To book your tickets, click here and select the events you are interested in.
SQIFF Mini-Series 2022 is 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.
