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.
Festival director Xanthe Hamilton said: “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.
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
“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.”
