Iris Prize Goes on Tour

Organisers of the Cardiff-based Iris Prize LGBT+ Film Festival have confirmed the programme of films and guest speakers to tour the UK in 2020 as part of Iris on the Move. The highlight of the tour will be preview screenings of And Then We Danced, a story of rivalry and desire set within the world of a prestige dancing academy in Georgia.

Andrew Pierce, Iris Prize Chair, commented, “It is important that Iris engages with audiences across the UK. I’m thrilled that during 2020 we will be adding Plymouth to our list of destinations, as Iris on the Move returns to Newcastle, Manchester, Bournemouth and Brighton. I’m also pleased that we will also be expanding our coverage in North Wales visiting Bangor and Caernarfon as well as our traditional base in Llandudno Junction.”
