Trans Parenting is a shorts programme that focuses on trans and non-binary experiences around family; raising families, forming families, and nurturing families.
Flash Flood (2017, Dir. Al Mackay) is a short animation. Deep within a rotoscoped dream, three transgender people confront a cataclysmic flood. Featuring stories from Jessie Anderson, Helen Poon and Al Mackay.
Transgender Parents (2013, Dir. Rémy Huberdeau) reveals the gifts trans people bring to parenting because of, and not in spite of, their gender. It’s an intimate and tender look at the art of parenting, some of the hardest relational work in this life.
M(OTHER)HOOD (2022, Dir. Bea Goddard) is a short documentary that shows an unfiltered but fragmentary perspective of Jack López – a trans parent of four children, using the children’s art, cinematography, and words to gain privileged access to their domestic sphere.
SQIFF aims to build community through queer films. Our goal is to get people watching, talking about, and making more queer films.
We want to screen movies that people might not otherwise get a chance to see and create inspiring and informative events across Scotland. Moreover, we want to support marginalised groups within the LGBTQ+ community by providing a networking system for queer filmmakers, as well as filmmaking workshops for audiences wanting to start on the medium. We want to challenge inequalities and barriers to accessing the arts.
