Matthew Rhys Thinks Losers Are Also Winners

Gay Film Fest Offers Top Prize

The Iris Prize Festival kicks of in Cardiff, Wales today. Judges and audiences will screen 30 short films and offer what organizers say will be the largest gay flick prize ever: £25,000.

Of the contest, Welsh actor Matthew Rhys,who plays gay on Brothers and Sisters and patronizes the festival, says:

I’m confident the international jury will find it difficult choosing an overall winner.

However, we should remember that all the film-makers who’ve reached the finals in Cardiff are already winners for getting this far.

We’ve never believed that “everyone’s a winner” bullshit. The person who wins is the winner. The others are just more talented losers than the people who didn’t make it. But, then again, we’re cynical assholes…
