13th Parish is delighted to present a programme of eight short films made in Jersey or made elsewhere by Jersey filmmakers. The programme includes animations, music videos, documentaries, drama and even a ‘fan film’. Many of the filmmakers will be present at the screening to introduce their films. A perfect opportunity to find out what’s happening here locally!
