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 screen movies that people might not otherwise get a chance to see. We create inspiring and informative events alongside challenging inequality and barriers to accessing the arts.
SQIFF is not-for-profit. We receive project by project funding, which means we typically have around 4 months of funding to pay staff during the Festival period with the rest of the Festival work done on a voluntary basis.
Best Scottish Short - open to all films under 50 minutes produced within Scotland. Prize money/equivalent received by winner varies.
