This year's Scottish Queer International Film Festival is brought to you by an all-new team, with support from Queer East, and features some of this year's biggest LGBTQ+ hits alongside three fantastic strands of shorts, two art installations, an analogue filmmaking workshop, a craft fair and more.

The festival takes place in the CCA on Glasgow's Sauchiehall Street. It is fully wheelchair accessible and extensive provision has been made for attendees with sensory impairments. There will also be a quiet room available for relaxing in.

The festival runs from 26 to 30 September.
