From 10-24 July, GSFF is proud to present DIVE IN Cinema, a two-week online screening series co-programmed by a cohort of Scottish independent exhibitors and film festivals. 

DIVE IN Cinema offers a mixture of features and short films across fiction, documentary and experimental work, as well as a few filmmaker conversations. Each screening is programmed by one of the contributing exhibitors and is available on demand for UK audiences for 48 hours, with a new programme released at 10am every day.

All screenings are FREE to view within the UK, however GSFF is collecting donations for Scottish charities The Unity Centre and Ubuntu Women Shelter. The Unity Centre provides advice and support to asylum seekers and migrants in Scotland. Ubuntu Women Shelter is a Glasgow-based charity that provides emergency accommodation needs for women with no recourse to public funds. There is a payment link to donate when you enter the hub.

Screenings are captioned for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences. Content notes per film will be listed on the online platform as appropriate.

DIVE IN Cinema is a collaboration between Africa in Motion, Alchemy Film & Arts, Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Central Scotland Documentary Festival, Dardishi, GSFF, IberoDocs, LUX Scotland, Matchbox Cineclub, Scottish Queer International Film Festival, Screen Argyll and Take One Action.


UNTIED Updates

It has been reported by people within the hotel that they are only being offered ibuprofen and sleeping tablets instead of mental health support – this is unacceptable.

We have seen first-hand how the absence of sustained, trauma- informed support compounds the trauma of womxn already hurt by state violence in their home countries, who are then re-traumatised by the inhumane asylum system and its engrained racialized logic that enforced destitution will incentivize voluntary returns.

In our direct support we have witnessed signs of asylum process related trauma. We believe this is part of a complex and multifaceted individual response and reaction to their life situations, and it is largely attributable to an asylum process designed to question their credibility and undermine their lived experience at every stage.

As part of our UNTIED (Ubuntu New Trauma-Informed Destitution support) programme, we are offering psychosocial support with our in-house licensed counsellor for the womxn residing in the hotel.

Please contact us for more information if you or anyone you know (womxn only) is in need of mental health support or contact our counsellor directly at or call to find out more at +44 7543 491900
