The 10th annual Iris Prize Festival for LGBTI short films has opened in Cardiff. Thirty-five films will compete for the £30,000 prize during five days of screenings and events in the city. The festival opened with the screening of specially commissioned films in English and Welsh, while a jury choose the winner of the international selection of short films. Organiser Berwyn Rowlands said it was important there was a festival that celebrated LGBT films. "Politically, gay people are in a much better position in the UK than they were 10 years ago," he said.
