Sad Girl Cinema is an ongoing documentary film project exploring mental health narratives in screen culture created by queer writers Claire Biddles and Bethany Rose Lamont and designed by Maggie Webster. Sorted into three themes: therapy, the mental health ward, and tortured geniuses and tragic muses, SGC navigates a whole bunch of pop cultural clichés in film, television, and music videos. For SQIFF, SGC presents a selection of clips exploring these themes through a queer lens, plus a first look at the documentary and a panel discussion on the intersection of mental health and LGBTQ+ identity onscreen.

In partnership with LGBT Health andWellbeing.

Content note: discussion and depiction of mental health issues andtherapy.

Film clips will be screened with English language subtitles, with BSL interpretation for the post-screening discussion.
