Prix d’Honneur of the 13th Parish Festival 2022
Winner: High Sky, Low Land By Maria Eriksson-Hecht, Sweden, 2021
Jury statement: A powerful central performance by a hugely talented young actor, skilful direction and a well paced narrative, makes this a moving and compelling story.
Runner up: Woodpeckers By Owen Warren / Ireland / 2021
A strong concept, simply portrayed with a deliciously dark ending.
L’Esprit de la Fête of the 13th Parish Festival 2022
Winner: Rough By Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson / Ireland / 2021
The power of love triumphs over the love of power, in this sharp, dark comedy of one young man’s dedication to his dog. The twist at the end is absolutely superb.
Runner up: Cradle By Paul Muresan / Romania / 2020
Mythic, archetypal imagery drives a powerful and affecting short narrative.
The Jersey Short Film Competition was judged by Mick Hannigan, IndieCork Festival
Best Jersey Short Film
Winner: The Parable of the Leaf Blower By Rachel Ara / Jersey / 2022
Juror statement: The awarded film is one that, while deceptively simple in its production (made on the artist’s kitchen table) is rich in meaning; an animated parable for our complex times. The short is a stimulating commentary on the current state of humankind, female and male.
