Held in Cardiff Each October, the Iris Prize Festival is internationally recognised for showcasing the very best of LGBT+ filmmaking. 35 short films will compete for the £30,000 ‘Iris Prize’, used by the winning filmmaker to create another short film. A number of other awards are also delivered throughout the week.
The event offers visitors and creators the chance to attend screenings of the short films in each category, Q&A panels, discussions and parties. There really is something for everyone!
Want to travel to this event?
Cineworld Cardiff and Park Inn, both located in the City Centre, are the main venues for the festival. Both are in close proximity to Cardiff Central train station and can also be accessed along a number of bus routes, so expect these services to be busier than usual during this week.
