13th Parish Taster Day : 13th October 2023 : Jersey Arts Centre
This October 13th the 13th Parish Festival is presenting a day of film at the Jersey Arts Centre.
Our event offers a ‘taste’ of the diverse range of films that we’ll show in our May festival.
The day begins with two screenings aimed at young audiences, the award-winning animation ‘The Song of the Sea’ and an amazing new documentary ‘The Nettle Dress’, Directed by Dylan Howitt. (Schools groups should contact the JAC for bookings and further details.)
Our early evening screening is a music documentary, ‘Silêncio – Voices of Lisbon’ which explores the roots of Fado singing. It shows how the traditional home of this beautiful music is under threat through excessive tourism and gentrification. The film is in Portuguese with English subtitles.
We conclude the taster day with “Award-Winning Shorts’ – a collection of excellent international short films. These six films range in style from humorous animation (Grandad was a Romantic), to a celebration of the classic motorbike (Ride) an includes a touching family story (An Irish
