A slight divergence from the "London" part of the Lesbian and Gay Film Festival today as we explore Cardiff's hidden history and it's own International Film Festival, the Iris Prize.

In 2007 Wales launched the biggest prize for a short film festival, valued at £25,000. Filmmakers, and partner festivals submit a total of 30 shorts, which are judged by an International Jury. The Iris Prize has grown from strength to strength, and this year they held a reception at the LLGFF to encourage more directors to submit their work.
