Members Launch 2015


Iris supporters who commit to accommodating a visiting film maker or jury member, or who volunteer with the Iris team receive all membership benefits for free, as well as the additional benefit of an Access All Areas Pass.

This famed ‘Friend of Iris’ pass gains you admission to all Iris Prize Festival screenings, talks, filmmaker brunches and parties, and a discounted Award Show ticket.


To help ensure Iris can continue to offer winning film makers the opportunity to make a new short film we have established the Iris Prize Short Film Fund. Members who are willing to donate at least £150 to the Iris Prize Short Film Fund will receive all of the benefits of being a Friend of Iris, as well as seeing their donation put to good use in supporting the Iris Prize itself. Iris Short Film Patrons will also receive an on-screen credit on the Iris short produced in the year of their donation.
