The aim of 13th Parish is to offer a space for music and film that stimulates, surprises and intrigues audiences.
Over a packed Spring weekend we will show exciting contemporary films that you will not find in any other local cinema, hold workshops and talks, and present a programme of diverse musical performances. We are already busy planning a few other events which are due to take place before the festival – so watch this space…
The festival will focus on independent film from around the world, with dedicated programmes of international, Irish and French language material.
A founding partner of 13th Parish is the IndieCork festival in Cork, Ireland. It is the festival’s intention to establish partnerships with similar creative organisations throughout the Channel Islands, Normandy, Brittany, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Its programmes of film, music, talks and workshops will reflect the diversity of cultures within the region whilst welcoming exciting work from around the world.
The Parishioners invite participation from local film-makers, artists, musicians and any others wishing to be practically involved in this exciting new venture. We are not necessarily looking for slick, high spec productions – we ARE looking for imagination, different ways of seeing and hearing, new stories to tell.
For those wishing to further support the project, to avail of special offers and to have an input to its creative direction, our membership scheme will soon be up and running!
To submit a film for consideration, to sign up for membership or to request further information, please refer to the relevant pages on this site. You are, of course, invited to join us on social media, and all queries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
