Short Films 2021
Iris has been sharing stories from around the world for 15 years, so it’s always a pleasure and a privilege when we can share some from places new. Encompassing drama, documentary and a music video, these films take us to Russia, Iran, Bulgaria, war-torn Libya and the First Nation community of Manawan, Quebec. Globally, the rights and freedoms of Queer people vary greatly, and though these films shine a light on the terrible difficulties many still face, they also offer messages of hope.
