Back for another year, the Scottish Queer International Film Festival has some great treats in store. It includes a focus on queer Arab lives, an East Asian focus and documentaries from around the world, as well as the ever-popular night of Scottish queer short films. We're still adding details so look out for more here over the next few days.
The festival celebrates the work of queer, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, asexual and intersex people as well as disabled people and people of colour.
All events at SQIFF prioritise accessibility for disabled attendees and all films have English language subtitles and captions. BSL interpretation and audio description are available at some events.
Tickets are available on a pay-what-you-can-afford basis.
The festival runs from 5 to 9 December.
