Branchage

A New Way of Watching

user
There was a very interesting article on-line in The Guardian newspaper the other day which discussed how film festivals were changing the way that they presented films. The Branchage festival in Jersey was an exemplary example of a new breed of film festival emerging in the UK. During the festival at Branchage this year, they put on a drive-in show of Superman projected on to the side of a dam, screened a documentary about bee colony collapse in an agricultural polytunnel and on a bris...

Branchage Festival 2009

Jersey film festival to screen The Wizard of Oz in magical drive-in cinema experience

- The Wizard of Oz screened People’s Park Oct 3rd

- As part of Branchage, taking place Oct 1st – 4th

Branchage Jersey International Film Festival is coming back to the island in October, screening an incredible selection of films in breathtaking

and unusual locations.

Highlights for 2009’s festival will include a spectacular drive-in-cinema showing seminal Judy Garland classic The Wizard Of Oz, a screening of this year’s most shocking film Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist and British Sea Power performing their poignant soundtrack to the renowned 1934 fisherman film Man of Aran.

Branchage Jersey International Film Festival has an unbeatable range of films being screened in truly breathtaking locations, including a beautiful drive-in screening of The Wizard Of Oz at People’s Park on the island, a truly terrifying screening of Antichrist in a scary hut in the Jersey woods and an incredible performance by British Sea Power to the classic black & white fisherman film Man of Aran.

The festival launched in 2008 as a vibrant cross-arts film festival that transformed a number of Jersey’s well recognised landmarks and changed them into unusual screening venues.

Venues secured for the 2009 festival include: Mount Orgueil Castle, Jersey Museum Cinema, The Town Hall/Magistrates Courts, The War Tunnels, Victoria College Boys School Hall, Jersey Opera House. There’ll also be screenings inside the spectacular Barclays Wealth Spiegeltent, plus an incredible drive-in screening at People’s Park.

Branchage aims to create new cinema-going experiences by holding screenings at unusual, atmospheric locations - bringing people into environments they wouldn't usually associate with film, and hand-picking the perfect films to screen in these breathtaking locations.

The festival is also giving a total of £10,000 in awards for filmmakers, across a range of categories.

Festival director Xanthe Hamilton said: “Rolling off the success of the first year Branchage is back in 2009 with even more gusto. This year we have really honed our programming style, and with even more unusual venues we will be taking films into fitting and interesting spaces, offering our audiences a whole new cinema experience.

“The film programme is vast and diverse, and this year we have a very strong educational and industry strand and in true Branchage style a heavy helping of live music and party madness. This year we are proud to be inviting several filmmakers from around the world to present their films in Jersey, and we are exited about our new partnerships with the US based True/False Documentary Film Festival and a radio show coming live out of the festival on air in New Jersey and New York.”
