Scottish Queer International Film Festival – 26 – 30 September

SQIFF 2023 will open on 26th September with the ever-popular Scottish Shorts, celebrating local filmmakers’ home-grown film projects. This year’s festival will host a mixture of Queer classics and new releases, with a focus on new filmmaking talent.

This year’s artwork is by Konstantinos korakonero, a Glasgow based artist who has created a comic-book universe for SQIFF 2023, with a diverse range of characters bringing energy and fun to the front of this year’s festival. They say that “SQIFF feels like an incredible opportunity for queer filmmakers and audiences to be brought together, and something that is much needed and appreciated in Glasgow at the moment. The artwork is inspired by that feeling of vibrant and explosive queer creativity that I’m excited to experience as an attendee this year.”

Access measures are at the forefront of SQIFF’s festival as always, with audio description, live captioning, BSL interpretation, closed captioning and more. Throughout the festival, there will be a quiet room to take a breath between films and chill out with hot drinks, sensory toys, and comfy seating.
