WELCOME / CROESO
The Iris Prize – Cardiff’s International lgbt short film prize supported by The Michael Bishop Foundation is the only short film prize in the world which allows the winner to make a new film. Iris is what film makers need – funding, support and guidance.
The Iris Prize is presented annually during the Iris Prize Festival which takes place in Cardiff, Wales. The next festival takes place from 7 - 11 October 2015.
The 2015 programme will include upto 20 new feature films, screenings of all 30 short films competing for the Iris Prize and the 10 competing for the Best British Short, the Producers Forum, talks and lots of parties! Our country focus for 2015 will be Ireland.
Iris is also the God of the rainbow - universally adopted as a symbol of sexual diversity. She is also a messenger – and this website is a network for celebrating the work of our festival partners, film-makers and friends.
