Iris on the Move at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 10–19 February 2022, from £7.50 - Book now

Iris on the Move celebrates LGBT+ film all year round, and this February they are bringing their nomadic film festival to Manchester with shorts and events spread across two days.

Starting on Thursday 10 February, a Best of Iris 2021 programme delivers four short films that take us as far as Libya and Russia for stories of political struggle, romantic connection and personal dreams. The screening will feature a Q&A with Adam Ali, co-director of Baba, which follows a queer teenager living in the tunnels beneath Tripoli, who must decide whether to stay or to flee his homeland.

On Saturday 19 February, a talk titled Reviewing films – why bother in 2022? explores the relevance of reviews in a digital age, the impact of reviews on a film’s success, and how to develop your skills as a film critic. Then, Best of Iris – Trans Stories 2021 presents shorts focusing on Trans stories – which touch on experiences in prison, school and the military, introduced by Iris Prize Festival Director, Berwyn Rowlands.
