The Scottish Queer International Film Festival (SQIFF) has announced its full programme, as it celebrates its fifth birthday this year.

SQIFF’s festival coordinator, Helen Wright, said: "We are really happy to be celebrating the 5th birthday of SQIFF! This year, we are thinking about how we can focus on LGBTQIA+ communities coming together and working together to tackle oppression whilst also foregrounding the voices that most need to be heard right now.”

SQIFF 2019 will run from Wednesday 2 to Sunday 6 October in accessible venues across Glasgow. Included in the festival's programme of events is a big screen showing of Janelle Monae’s album, Dirty Computer.

Other highlights include the Latinx Legends strand, which foregrounds individuals central to Latin American queer art and activism in a series of exceptional documentaries; a series of shorts covering a range of topics; and a special screening of Before Stonewall, in association with Stonewall Scotland, marking 50 years since the Stonewall Riots.

Tickets to all events are priced on a pay-what-you-can sliding scale of £0-£8 based on individual circumstances.
