Grant has a passion for putting things into alphabetical order and studying train timetables – which is probably just as well as he’s retained by the Iris Prize team to look after the archive as well organising the travel for the guests.   Over the past five years no-one’s got lost and all the films have made it Cardiff for their screenings within budget so he must be doing something right.

Outside of the period of peak activity around the Festival Grant keeps the office infrastructure running and also works as one of the producers of the Iris Prize winner’s prize short.
