Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

IRIS


IRIS, BY FIRST TIME DIRECTOR DIANA RODRIGUEZ, IS ONE OF THE BEST FOR FESTS CURATED BY BRUNO CHATELIN FOR THE FESTIVAL CIRCUIT

 

Alice Kremelberg (Orange Is The New Black) stars as the eponymous Iris, and gives an outstanding lead performance as this tortured soul dreadfully awaiting the death of her Aunt Adelaide, played by Mary Looram (Like Father, Braid). As Aunt Adelaide slowly withers away in hospice, Iris continues her day to day routines of working in an antique shop, and scrolling online for connections through an online dating app. However, Iris has an ulterior motive behind her digital search for suitors, and it’s not love. Iris has a hunger, and she needs to feed. On every date she goes on, she sizes her match up and determines their strength of character on a criteria of what she considers basic human decency. And if any of her dates fail to meet her standards, then that’s the end of them. They’re dinner. That’s just how Iris operates.

But complications arise when Iris meets Tom, played by Grant MacDermott (Hustlers, Mr. Robot), at a support group meeting for people dealing with the lingering effects of grief. Tom is a good hearted man coping with crippling trauma. As their chaste relationship develops, Iris is confounded by a debilitating emotional dilemma. She yearns for the love she once lost, but recognizes the potential in having a strong bond with Tom. Unfortunately, her primal nature exposes itself in the heat of lust, causing her deep seated vampirism to emerge and overtake her instincts. So she can never truly express her true feelings to Tom without it resulting in his death. What’s a timeless girl to do in the big city?

Iris nominated at Colortape International Film Festival

Colortape International Film Festival

Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak and the safety and well-being of the public and our staff we have decided to cancel all outdoor/indoor screening until further notice. Our thoughts go to the filmmakers, film industry and ALL the people in the world and families of the victims of the COVID-19 in their flesh or their business; and we express our loud gratitude and solidarity with all of those who are fighting that disease. Our consideration and sympathy go to all thefilmmakers, writers, animators, digital content makers which had to cancel or postpone their works. We understand all the frustration. We understand the work involved, we respect the tough decision and feel sorry for all the lost opportunities for our filmmaker friends in their quest to reach an audience.

We are here to help if we can. MOST IMPORTANT AT THIS STAGE STAY SAFE: APPLY SOCIAL DISTANCING...STAY SAFE & BE SAFE!
We hope that this crisis will be over soon. GBU

Colortape International Film Festival is a multicultural film festival promoting worldwide arts & culture through films, while bridging cultural differences, friendship, showcasing the creative vision of filmmakers from over the world. We are strong advocates and promoters of peace, love, friendship and mutual respect. One of very few festivals, if not the only one, to guaranteed acceptance, entry and certification for every filmmaker!
Over 2990 filmmakers were rewarded in the past 6 years!
Dedicated mainly for international entries who would like to showcase their work to the Australian audience. Offering a transparent and culturally un-biased selection. Opening the door to those who normally get rejected or are unfairly disqualified based on English language or difference in culture. Local Australian filmmakers, based within our shores or outside can also participate. We acknowledge that there are many more options available to local filmmakers, we noted in the past that many Australian films also do not get the right recognition and acceptance from local film festivals. Even if there are better quality films entered from overseas. We would still like to reward everyone for their hard work, and creative nature.

Colortape is a film competition and film festival offering an Indoor/Outdoor screening opportunity , to showcase filmmakers work, and reward everyone towards the end of the competitive season.

Worth mentioning: From every fee paid we donate at least 10% of your fees and carry out a charitable cause, helping micro-fund people with entrepreneurial ideas and programs in poorer countries, to alleviate poverty. Hence we fund entrepreneurs, programs and groups that involves disadvantaged people, who want to get out of poverty, and take their lives and future into their own hands, while connecting them through lending, .
