Branchage International Film Festival returns to the island of Jersey for its fourth year, starting on Thursday 22 September 2011, with the opening night screening of Asif Kapadia’s Senna. The festival has a well deserved reputation for its audacious and imaginative programming, bringing together site-specific installations, live performances of music and other entertainment, including live scores, screenings of the world’s best new, fascinating and inspiring films, and the Branchage School programme of award-winning mentor-led courses for film makers, this year with a focus on documentary techniques and approaches.
This year Bubblebrain is part of an exotic line-up for one of the exclusive parties for which the festival is famous. Branchage Globale – A Night of International Beats and Songs is at the Havana Nightclub, Halkett Street, St. Helier, on Friday 23 September.
The event ties in with the festival’s presentation of Benda Bilili! an acclaimed documentary about Congolese street musicians directed by Renaud Barret and Florent De La Tullaye. Three rooms at the Havana, each with a great sound system, will have performers and DJs providing eclectic, mind-expanding fusions of irresistible, hypnotic dance music from around the world. The main stage will feature live performances by London-based electronic musician and producer Capitol K, Cameroonian guitarist and songwriter Muntu Valdo, and Bubblebrain, and headlining DJ sets by Martelo and oneofakind. Meanwhile in Room 2 DJ Limey Banton, MC Jay Deemas, and Zion Sound excite passions of revolutionary consciousness with the choicest reggae cuts from ska to dancehall, and in Room 3 The Quietus DJs present The Departure Lounge, with DJ Carrie Cooper.
