Prix Iris

The Prix Iris is Canadian film award, presented annually by Québec Cinéma, that recognizes talent and achievement in the mainly francophone feature film industry in Quebec.[1] Until 2016, it was known as the Jutra Award (Prix Jutra, with the ceremony called La Soirée des Jutra) in memory of influential Quebec film director Claude Jutra, but Jutra's name was withdrawn from the awards following the publication of allegations that Jutra had sexually abused underage children.[2]

Introduced in 1999, the awards are presented for performance, writing and technical categories such as best actor, actress, director, screenplay, et cetera. It should not be confused with the Claude Jutra Award, a special award presented by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television as part of the separate Canadian Screen Awards program which was also renamed in 2016 following the allegations against Jutra.

Following the withdrawal of Jutra's name from the award, the 2016 awards were presented solely under the name Québec Cinéma pending an announcement of the award's new permanent name.[2] The Prix Iris name was announced in October 2016.[1]

The trophy was designed by sculptor Charles Daudelin. The awards replaced the prix Guy-L'Écuyer, created in 1987 by Les Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois in memory of actor Guy L'Écuyer.
