Festival City #10 | Bruce LaBruce and SQIFF

We interview pioneering filmmaking Bruce LaBruce and discuss the Scottish Queer International Film Festival programme
Now onto its third edition, the Scottish Queer International Film Festival has found success fast, and managed to push a few buttons along the way. A great lineup of films catering to a broad spectrum of identities as well as a brilliant programme of lectures, workshops and parties propelled it to the number nine spot on The List's Hot 100 last year. The team behind the SQIFF have continued this trend with the 2017 festival, taking place now in Glasgow.
In episode ten of the podcast, our host Gareth K Vile is joined by SQIFF programming committee member Marc David Jacobs to discuss the festival, what queer means and share some recommendations. For part two of the episode we're very lucky to have writer, photographer and underground filmmaker Bruce LaBruce for a wide ranging discussion starting with the New Queer Cinema of the 80s, punk, confrontational filmmaking and the difficulty of being an 'underground' artist in 2017. LaBruce's The Misandrists just made its Scottish premiere on opening night at the GFT, and he'll be DJing at the Drygate on Sunday, so don't miss that.
