It is with great regret that I have had to cancel this year’s Jersey Film Festival.
It has been cancelled because of health and safety reasons
The festival has become increasingly popular and it has not been possible to the secure the number of police and security officers (with health and safety training) required for an event which last year attracted 7,000 on one evening. It had provided free and family-friendly entertainment for thousands of people over the years but has now, perhaps, been a victim of its own success and will require a different scale of risk assessment, and health and safety measures.
I would like to thank the marvellous volunteers and sponsors for their wonderful support, and I am sorry that I have to have taken the difficult decision to cancel this – the 25th festival. I hope that the Jersey Film Festival will return next year.
