Shorts: Did You Really Say That?

mi·cro·ag·gres·sion / noun: a subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a marginalized group, often unintentional or unconsciously reinforcing of a stereotype. It’s time we make the invisible, visible and call out the pervasive biases that reveal themselves in thoughtless remarks. Come root for the protagonists in this skin-crawling collection as they confront their intangible — or in some cases, very tangible — provoker, one Did-you-really-say-that? moment at a time.

My Loneliness is Killing Me is screening with:

I Think She Likes You (dir. Bridey Elliott), USA
The Morning After (dir. Tricia Hagoriles), Canada
There's Still Good (dir. Ciaran Maidwell), South Africa
Not Black Enough (dir. Bryce Marrero), USA
Black Lips (dir. Adrian Chiarella), Australia

Aye Write! We Were Always Here

In conversation with Harry Josephine Giles, Etzali Hernández and Michael Lee Richardson

By turns serious and fantastical, hilarious and confrontational, queer anthology We Were Always Here is a snapshot of current Scottish LGBTQ+ writing and a showcase of queer talent. 

From drag queens and discos, to black holes and monsters, these stories and poems wrestle with love and loneliness and the fight to be seen. 

Followed by a screening of the BAFTA award-winning short film My Loneliness is Killing Me.

SQIFF SHORTS: QUEER SCOTLAND

Our 2018 Scottish shorts programme contains another exciting range of work by and about LGBTQ+ people and communities within our (un)fair land. Among the imagery and themes included are the search for community and intimacy, trans embodiment, anti-queer conditioning, erotic fantasies in rural landscapes, lost love, spinsterhood, tarot cards, crayfish, and witches! Featuring a spectrum of narrative and experimental styles encompassing melodrama, film-poetry, animation, collective filmmaking, documentary, and diaristic footage.

We hope to be joined by a number of the filmmakers for a Q&A.
