Iris Prize discussions/ events

Iris Prize Festival 2010
Introductions / lectures / discussions / award ceremony/ events

Wednesday 6 October – Day 1

Sponsored by Bafta Cymru

This panel session will focus on women working within film and television and will examine if they have the same opportunities of their male counterparts within the sector, if they bring a different perspective and sensibility to their craft than men do, and the experience of the panellists of working within an industry which took 82 years to award one of its highest honours to a woman. The panellists will include the respected actress Sue Jones Davies, Iris Prize Patron Carol Coombes, Briony Hanson from the Script Factory and the 2007 Iris Prize Best UK Short winner, Abbe Robinson.

Hell's Bent
@Cardiff Arts Institute
Join the bears and all their bear friends at the official Iris Prize after party for BearCity. Hells Bent is a popular Cardiff institution and offers alternative music for alternative gays!

Saturday 9 October – Day 4

@ Chapter 1
The session will address the representation of gay characters by filmmakers and broadcasters who are themselves a minority. The experience in Wales and Spain will come under the microscope as our distinguished panel including freelance editor and reviewer Philip Wyn Jones, Ryan Prout from Cardiff University and actor and director Arwel Griffiths start a conversation which we hope will be relevant to all minorities.
