13th parish

Taking place over the weekend of May 17th – 19th 2019 at the Jersey Arts Centre, this new festival will screen the best of independent film from around the world. It will also highlight local Jersey and Channel Island talent, in both film and music. With the recent hit film ‘Beast’, director Michael Pearce has shone a light on Jersey. Our new festival will work to create a sustainable, artistic festival that links and associates Jersey to the international film and music scenes.

  • We partner with the States Greffe and with Jersey Heritage in a special screening of films from circa 1910, which includes Jersey footage from the period, and ‘Die Suffragette’ as part of the States celebration of the centenary year of suffragism.
  • This screening is kindly sponsored by Corbett Le Quesne.
  • Our creative collaborator is the renowned IndieCork Festival from Ireland
  • Our first international guest focus, is the Off-Courts Festival from Trouville, France who will deliver a special programme
