We receive hundreds of short films annually as part of our open submissions process. When you add the films viewed by our partner festivals, thousands of films are considered for the Iris Prize and Iris Prize Best British. This year we have increased the number of people helping Iris select films to go through to the final, resulting in a stronger diversity of the communities we represent. We would like to thank everybody who has taken part in the 2020 pre-selection process. The Iris Prize (International) Pre-selectors were: Charlotte Isherwood, Campbell X, Eldar Rapaport, Jayne Rowlands, Lara Zeidan, Luisa Pércopo, Christina Radburn, Lisa Nesbitt, Grant Scicluna, Olivier Namet, Daisy Gould, Claire Vaughan, Thomas Rees, Katie White and Amy Daniel.
