Iris Education is a project funded by Ffilm Cymru Wales which allows the Iris team to work with pupils from schools all around South Wales to tackle homophobic bullying.
The students take part in a film programming session, where they get to watch a carefully selected programme of short films, covering LGBT+ issues. Pupils are then able to begin the film development phase, where they work with the Iris team to create, develop and produce their own short film.
Their film is then acted and directed by the pupils and shot over a period of one day. The film is then edited by the Iris team and the final product is exhibited at the pupils very own film festival in front of their peers.
If your school would like to take part in the Iris Education project then please email Mark@irisprize.org for more information.
