KEEP OFF THE GRASS, written and directed by Francis Rudd, will screen at IRIS PRIZE — UK’s biggest celebration of LGBTQ+ film (and a BAFTA-qualifying festival) — which is being held in Cardiff, Wales, from October 11 – 16, 2022.
In this short, two amateur soccer players struggle to come to terms with their sexuality. While attracted to the other, can the duo overcome the sport’s intolerance and find acceptance? To learn more, please visit: https://irisprize.org/film/keep-off-the-grass/
