New Iris Film Productions (15)

These three new films made by winners of the Iris Prize and a community production are a celebration of LGBTQ+ lives. Each is an example of excellence in storytelling and together the programme is sure to make you cry and laugh.

A Beautiful Form To See (PG) | Dir. Lara Zeidan | 8 Mins

A Beautiful Form to See (starring Alicia Agneson) is a short film where a young woman gets trapped in her fantasy inside a Kaleidoscope. This is the 11th film made with the Iris Prize sponsored by The Michael Bishop Foundation.

I Shall Be Whiter Than Snow (PG)| Dir. Frederick Stacey | 17 Mins

This short film is based on the true story of a lesbian couple, Kim and Roseann, who were married at Velindre Hospital, Cardiff in 2018 whilst Kim was receiving treatment for cancer. This emotional film is a touching love story between two women and a celebration of the amazing staff who work for our NHS and the importance of compassionate care. The film stars Rebecca Harries and Lynn Hunter, supported by a cast of NHS professionals.

Cardiff (15) | Dir. Sarah Smith (winner of the 2019 Iris Prize) | 25 Mins

Perpetually single, Frederick envies his fabulous gay friend Joe, who seems to have a never-ending supply of paramours despite being happily married himself. But when Frederick’s meddling mother arrives for a visit, she thrusts him into a forbidden romance, and a series of unforeseen betrayals hilariously expose some carefully held secrets. The film stars Welsh Icon Ruth Madoc, Stifyn Parri and Richard Elis.
