More information about Iris membership 2021 coming soon

Whilst we wait for in-person events to return, why not stay in touch with Iris.


Other Ways to Support Iris


Iris supporters who commit to accommodating a visiting film maker or jury member, or who volunteer with the Iris team receive all membership benefits for free, as well as the additional benefit of a full festival pass.

This famed ‘Friend of Iris’ pass gains you admission to all Iris Prize screenings, talks, filmmaker lunches and parties.


To help ensure Iris can continue to offer winning film makers the opportunity to make a new short film we have established the Iris Prize Short Film Fund. Members who are willing to donate at least £150 to the Iris Prize Short Film Fund will receive all of the benefits of being a Friend of Iris, as well as seeing their donation put to good use in supporting the Iris Prize itself. Iris Short Film Patrons will also receive an on-screen credit on the Iris short produced in the year of their donation.
