ELEVEN short films will be given alfresco screenings this week in a collaboration between two of the Island’s most recent cultural organisations.

Public Voice: Common Ground – which has been set up to improve the quality of public space in St Helier – has joined forces with the 13th Parish Jersey International Film Festival for the special evening of screenings at the Perch outside Romerils.

The area – a section of car park transformed with pallet boards, structural planting and recycled vegetable planters into a temporary area for relaxation – will offer something quite different on Thursday.

From 8pm, the 13th Parish Film Festival will be curating a series films from their Jersey showcase strand championing the work of local film makers.

Luka Pinto’s Little Green, Marc Medland’s Super Birds and Rachel Ara’s The Parable of The Leaf Blower will be among 11 shorts that will be projected onto the wall of Romerils’ car park by Stefentertainment. Members of the public are encouraged to attend with family and friends, and to bring their own seating to be sure of a comfortable view.

Public Voice: Common Ground founder Sasha Gibb acknowledged the support of Romerils’ chair Mark Syvret and his team in embracing their mission to improve public spaces for Islanders.

‘Their investment and vision have enabled other partners to see the value of working together across sectors to enable change. We are delighted to be working with 13th Parish and Stefan Rousseau to champion the work of local film makers and bring their work to a wider audience,’ she said.

Mrs Gibb added that Public Voice: Common Ground encouraged Islanders to speak up about their aspirations for public space in St Helier.

‘This can be done through the three-minute survey at:, or through the blackboards at the site. The survey is anonymous and will be used to enable improvement to public space for people,’ she added.

The Pop-up Perch at Romerils’ carpark, Hue St, is open daily. The perch is accessible to wheelchair users. Further details are available at:
