The Iris Prize is a film and media organisation committed to increasing audiences for LGBTQ+ stories. Our main projects include the annual Iris Prize LGBTQ+ Film Festival and Iris on the Move, our UK wide touring programme. Our partnership with Film4 / All4 delivers a million viewers for our Best British programme of shorts films. We also support the production of new content via the £30,000 Iris Prize; our Documentary Film Finance Fund invests £20,000 annually in one British documentary; and our community work funded by the Lottery Community Fund will soon have produced 50 short films! Iris also runs LGBTQ+ education and community outreach projects in Wales & the UK throughout the year.
