Iris has many friends in many places all over the world. The Iris family is extensive and once a year they meet in Cardiff to celebrate and experience the best of the best in LGBT cinema and present some important awards – including the world’s largest prize for a short film at £30,000 sponsored by The Michael Bishop Foundation.

It would be nice to think that all of this happens by magic, with the wave of the Iris wand or a sprinkle of Iris dust. However, as with most things in life something as big as the Iris Prize Festival needs a lot of attention. The people involved including the staff, patrons and friends are all committed and enthusiastic individuals and you can discover a little more about them by following the links on this page.

Alternately why not come over to Cardiff and meet us in person – most of us will be here from 10 – 15 October 2017!
