SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) was formed with the aim of adding to the exciting and growing amount of queer film stuff happening around Scotland. Since 2015, we have held an annual Festival in Glasgow alongside providing year round events across various locations. Our goal is to get people watching, talking about, and making more queer films. We want to screen movies that people might not otherwise get a chance to see and create inspiring and informative events. We also want to challenge inequalities and barriers to accessing the arts.
SQIFF is not-for-profit. We receive project by project funding. For the annual Festival this means we have funding to pay mostly part-time, freelance staff over several months during the Festival period. The rest of the Festival work and year round admin is currently done on a voluntary basis.
Profits from merchandise sales go back into supporting the work of SQIFF. For info about SQIFF events, go to www.sqiff.org.
