Event description
For LGBT History Month, SQIFF presents a programme of short films looking back into the history of queer Scottish film in the 20th century.

About this Event

A screening archival documentaries and short films by queer filmmakers, accompanied by a discussion examining whether these films are a fair representation of the past, and asking what they may be able to contribute to an understanding of the future. Films include Bongo Erotico, a surreal nightmare of bisexual lust from 1950s' Wishaw; groundbreaking documentary of Edinburgh queer life in the 80s, Coming Out; and Pratibha Parmar's experimental 1990 short, Bhangra Jig, which follows a young Asian woman walking the streets of Glasgow with signs of colonialism ever-present.

Ages 12+. Films are in the English language with English language captions for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing access. Venue has wheelchair access. Please get in touch via info@sqiff.org if you have any questions about access at the event.

Tickets are sold on a sliding scale of free to £8. Choose what you pay based on what you feel you can afford. No proof of your situation will be asked for. This is to make the event as accessible as possible to people whilst still asking those who can afford it to support LGBTQIA+ filmmakers and arts workers.

Presented in partnerhip with MSc Film, Exhibition and Curation at University of Edinburgh. Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
