Gay film festival's 25,000 prize

Quote
A film festival featuring what the organisers claim is largest ever prize for a gay and lesbian short film is opening in Cardiff.

The inaugural Iris Prize Festival will screen the 30 films shortlisted for the prize, worth 25,000, and host premieres for feature-length films.

Talks, debates, workshops and parties will also be held at Chapter Arts Centre and Cineworld.

The prize winner will be announced on the festival's last day, on Saturday.

The prize will allow the winner to make their next short film in the UK.

Here's the festival's site.

And... surprise, surprise... "Holding Trevor" is one of the entries. No doubt the other entries are good too. Alas, my unbounded enthusiasm for Jay Brannan rather skews my judgment on this point.
