To mark LGBT History month Cymru 2013, Cardiff Story Museum have partnered with Berwyn Rowlands, Festival Director of the Iris Prize Film Festival, to explore the unique contributions the Iris Prize Film Festival has made to Cardiff’s ongoing LGBT story as it enters its seventh year.
The evening will include a screening of the Best of Iris Prize 2012 which features four award winning short films exploring issues of identity, followed by a Q & A session with Berwyn Rowlands, who will discuss the achievements and future of the Iris Prize festival.
The Iris Prize – Cardiff’s International gay and lesbian short film prize is the only short film prize in the world which allows the winner to make a new film. Iris is more than just a trophy that gathers dust or a certificate that yellows on the wall. Iris is what film makers need – funding, support and guidance.
The Iris Prize is presented annually during the Iris Prize Festival which takes place in Cardiff. The full programme includes new feature films, panel sessions, parties and screenings of all 30 short films competing for the Iris Prize.
This event is not ticketed but we anticipate seats will go quickly so arrive early to secure a place.
