Baba (12A) | 18m | WINNER: Iris Prize and Iris Prize Best British 2021

In the tunnels beneath Tripoli, queer Libyan teenager Britannia dreams of escape to a better life. An unexpected discovery forces him to question if to stay or flee from his homeland and friends.

We Will Become Better – Sansara (PG) | 6m | Iris Prize 2021 HIGHLY COMMENDED

Director: Andzej Gavriss

Russian indie band Sansara’s music video is a tribute to Russia’s LGBT+ community, 12 months after Russia passed legislation defining marriage solely ‘a union of man and woman’. A wonderful fusion of music and movement and a stirring tale of thwarted love.

Cwch Deilen (U) | 8m | Iris Prize Best British 2021 HIGHLY COMMENDED

Director: Efa Blosse-Mason

Animated love story about a leaf which becomes a boat, while fears come out of the murky waters as sea monsters and storms. Will the Leaf Boat survive the tumultuous waves?

Two young men form a connection on the swings of their local park.
