Iris is open, friendly and collaborative, with hundreds welcomed into our worldwide Iris Family every year. Iris Prize is an BAFTA A-list qualifying festival. We have also been identified as one of the “50 film festivals worth the entry fee” by MovieMaker Magazine 5 times, most recently in 2020.

We offer a 100% fee waiver to all Iris Alumni.

If you have previously screened a film at Iris, please contact to obtain the waiver code.
