13th Parish is a new Film & Music Festival based in Jersey, Channel Islands, in partnership with our neighbours in every direction

 Festival dates – Spring 2022

After an exciting first festival in 2019, the 13th Parish (like so many other projects) was stalled by COVID restrictions. Even by Spring 2021 there was no guarantee that we would be able to entertain a significant audience indoors, so we held back…

However we are happy to announce that 13th Parish no.2 will now take place on May 12th-15th 2022. We look forward to seeing you there and we thank our supporters for their continuing faith in the project.

We will be bringing you an exciting mix of new international short films, documentaries, works of local and regional interest. We are also planning practical activities, talks and workshops for you to explore.

Our doors are open to all film formats for the 2022 festival. Submissions can be made here.

If you would like to find out about getting involved with 13th Parish in a practical way we would be glad to hear from you.  All queries should be made here.


About Us

The 13th Parish Festival of Independent Film and Music is a not for profit organisation. It’s core purpose is to make a positive contribution to Jersey’s cultural environment.  It does this by presenting exciting international film, encouraging the local film-making community and providing a platform for musicians and other media arts on the island. It is run by a voluntary board of experienced artists, arts administrators and festival professionals.

13th Parish aims to hold a main festival event each Spring, with other musical and audiovisual projects planned throughout the year.

The festival has established a membership scheme to foster community engagement and participation. Members are encouraged to take an active role in the organisation and contribute towards its artistic direction.
