• VIRGIN RADIO PRIDE PRESENTER EMMA GOSWELL CELEBRATES BEST BRITISH ALONGSIDE 2019 WINNER ALFIE DALE

• IRIS PRIZE IS BACK IN PERSON, IN CARDIFF, 5 – 10 OCTOBER 2021

Iris Prize is honoured to welcome a group of diversely talented individuals who have excelled in their chosen fields as jury members, judging the films in Best British and the international Iris Prize categories. The winners will be announced on Saturday 9 October 2021.

Berwyn Rowlands, Festival Director, commented:

“You can tell a lot about a festival from looking at the jury, and this year is no exception. The 2021 jury includes filmmakers, some are old friends, others are new friends to Iris. The jury also includes actors, journalists and a cross section of the public who share Iris’ interest in LGBT+ stories. They have an important job to do – winning a prize at Iris can be a huge help for a filmmaker, do I need to mention our inaugural winner Dee Rees who went on to be Oscar nominated. However, I also know that each year our jury as well as our audience also get to see the best of the best as we share some amazing LGBT+ stories.”

“Gallwch chi ddweud llawer am ŵyl o edrych ar y rheithgor, ac nid yw eleni yn eithriad. Mae rheithgor 2021 yn cynnwys gwneuthurwyr ffilm, rhai sy’n hen ffrindiau, eraill yn ffrindiau newydd i Iris. Mae’r rheithgor hefyd yn cynnwys actorion, newyddiadurwyr, a chroestoriad o’r cyhoedd sy’n rhannu diddordeb Iris mewn straeon LHDT+. Mae ganddyn nhw waith pwysig i’w wneud – gall ennill gwobr yng ngŵyl Iris fod yn help enfawr i wneuthurwr ffilm, fel ein henillydd cyntaf Dee Rees a aeth ymlaen i gael ei henwebu ar gyfer Oscar.
