SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) only started this year, and was formed with fairly simple and achievable goals, to bring films to Scotland that people may not otherwise get the chance to see; and to add to the burgeoning Queer film movement with exciting and interesting films being brought to Scotland. After success doing just that, the festival now tours, and a date with Newcastle’s Tyneside Cinema happens on Thursday 3rd December.

The film in question is 2011’s Break My Fall, selected for SQIFF’s carefully curated touring program and centred on the theme of Queer women in love. Kanchi Wichmann directs an honest, raw, sincere film that is original and will certainly have viewers utterly enthralled in what they’re watching.

It tells the story of Liza, who on the eve of her 25th birthday, with girlfriend Sally, becomes embroiled in a swirl of emotions that will change their lives forever. This story of a relationships on the rocks is soundtracked by some of the finest British bands around too, so it’s the perfect introduction to the Queer film movement, with a talk after featuring two noted lecturers, this really is a unique introduction to a growing film scene.

Break My Fall plays at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on Thursday 3rd December
