The Iris Prize LGBT+ Film Festival is a six-day celebration of LGBT+ film which takes place annually in Cardiff, Wales, UK. The 2022 festival will be our 16th edition and much has changed since the first 3-day festival in 2007 with 1,500 admissions. Today the flagship festival is almost a week-long, attracts 11,000 admissions, and the online offer is a month long with a UK on-line audience of 84,000.
The ‘Love Wins’ artists in detail:
Freddie is a songwriter, poet transgender pop musician based in Bristol. His work is defined by thoughtful and playful lyricism, catchy hook melodies, and nuanced accounts of emotion. Taking influence from pop, folk, and jazz, Freddie takes his love of poetry and enshrines it
within his signatory brand of bedroom pop. After first releasing music in summer 2021, Freddie has been played on BBC Radio 1, Radio 6 Music and featured as the cover artist on the Spotify editorial playlist, ‘Transcend’, for four months. He continues to grow as an artist, combining pop songs with poetry B-sides and in 2022 has already performed at The Great Escape Festival, Glastonbury, 2000 Trees and Bristol Pride.
Dead Method is a pop star for the new age, whose music plunges deep into the depths of alternative electro pop with a dark edge as he explores life itself. From love and loss to politics, gender and more, with sobering honesty and poetic flair. Dead Method has been making his mark on the live music scene including a main stage appearance at this year’s Pride Cymru. Dead Method’s latest album ‘Future Femme’ was produced by Edward Russell and has received glowing reviews. “A proud champion for LGBTQ+ culture, his songs ripple with a certain industrial glamour and a touch of violence.” (God Is In the TV)
Parisian-Welsh artist Kitty has established herself as a true pop force to be reckoned with. Influenced by the likes of Lady Gaga, Kim Petras, Charli XCX and Dorian Electra – Kitty is riding the new wave of hyperpop with an explosion of sound and visuals. Now settled in Cardiff, she’s not holding back in her endeavours to enliven the local pop scene and push boundaries with her music. Already with international and radio plaudits, her prolific back catalogue of pop shows there’s so much more to come.
