Our 13th Parish Angels

If you would like to lay a foundation stone of a vibrant, international, independent festival in Jersey, please consider joining us!

Your support will give us the opportunity to establish Jersey and the Channel Islands as credible members of one of the most exciting creative communities in the world.

Taking place over the weekend of May 17th – 19th 2019 at the Jersey Arts Centre, this new festival screens 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, it’s potential as a film location and a fascinating resource for story telling. Our new festival will work to foster a sustainable artistic community that links the Channel Islands to the international film and music scenes.

Some achievements of our first festival to date:
  • Our venue partner is Jersey Arts Centre
  • Our creative collaborator is the renowned IndieCork Festival from Ireland.
  • We have created the Jenny Lecoat award for female-centred scriptwriting; the award is supported by the Soroptomists of Jersey.
  • We have partnered with the States Greffe and 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 women’s suffrage.
  • This screening is kindly sponsored by Corbett Le Quesne.
  • Our first international guest focus, is the Off-Courts Festival from Trouville, France who will deliver a special programme.
