Lisa Gornick has made two award winning feature films, Do I Love You? (2003) and Tick Tock Lullaby (2007). She has directed for Channel 4, acted in films and theatre and has performed in her own live drawing shows at The Gilded Balloon and Soho Theatre. Her film The Book of Gabrielle is showing at this year’s festival, and Lisa will also be signing her book How to do it (a sex guide for everyone) and performing her new live show, What the fuck is lesbian film?

Lisa says: “I’m so glad to be coming back to Cardiff. I love the city and always have a brilliant time in many ways. I was there for the first Iris and it warms my heart to be coming back for its 11th year. Coming to get you, Iris!”
