In 2019, Sarah and Phillip's short film Black Hat won the Iris Prize, a £30,000 film award, the world's largest short film prize, to shoot their next film in the United Kingdom. That project is Cardiff. Previous Iris Prize winners include the acclaimed director Dee Rees.
Cardiff will be produced with the Iris Prize team in Cardiff, Wales, in the summer of 2021, and will premiere in 2022.
While Cardiff will have the backing of Iris Prize and a £30K stipend to produce the film, the size and scope of Cardiff, nearly twice as long as our previous short Black Hat, will require additional financial support to complete. This includes:
Travel, accommodation, and food for the US creative team
Post Sound Mix
External hard drive storage for editorial and backup
Musician fees for the score
