Theresa Heath is a PhD candidate researching Queer Film Festivals and Cinema at King’s College, London. She is also founder and producer of Wotever DIY Film Festival, a queer event showcasing low-budget work by the LGBTQ community.

“I’m really excited to be part of this year’s Iris Prize Festival jury for best performer. I studied drama as an undergraduate and so performance is central to my appreciation of film. I’m really looking forward to working with the other jurors and hopefully finding a new LGBT talent!”
