Tim Highsted, Channel 4, and Chair of the Iris Prize Best British Short jury, said: “This year’s British shorts at Iris once again reveal an array of talented filmmakers – from the joyful and warm winning short, Queer Parivaar, directed by Shiva Raichandani – through to all the films that were shortlisted.”
“I am also delighted to announce Film4’s renewal of support for the Iris Prize and the Best British Short for a further three years. Iris is a unique organisation that presents the best and most original LGBTQ+ work each year and like Channel 4 showcases original talent and stories, which we can bring to audiences through All4 after the festival has ended.”
