DESPITE its intersex-excluding LGBT acronym, the Iris Prize for short films is also open to intersex filmmakers and is valued at £25,000. May we suggest to the Prize organizers that they signal their apparent intersex inclusion loud and clear by using the intersex-inclusive LGBTI acronym? You know it makes sense and it will help attract more intersex filmmakers too.
The Iris Prize is open to any short film which is by, for, about or of interest to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex audiences and which must have been completed within 2 years prior to the submission deadline which was 1 July 2011. (That is they must have been completed between 5 July 2010 and 1 July 2011.)
The 2012 submissions process opens 9 January 2012.
