CINEMQ in Scotland

November 29, 2018

CINEMQ will be traveling to Glasgow in Scotland on December 6th for Scottish Queer International Film Festival, one of the UK's leading LGBTQ film events. SQIFF this year has a special focus on East Asia, and will be screening such recent releases as transgender triptych Alifu, The Prince/ss and steamy gay drama The Story Of The Stone.

 

 

As part of the festival, we will be presenting a series of gender-queer short films by filmmakers from Greater China to accompany the festival screening of our documentary Extravaganza. Do you have friends in Scotland? Tell them to come and say hello on December 6th at CCA in Glasgow! The full SQIFF programme can be found at sqiff.org, but here's a taste of the films we're presenting.
