The year 2010 is a so-called jubilee year of St. James, Año Santo Jacobeo. Due to this especial occasion, a lot of exiting cultural activities will take place along the various European pilgrim roads to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

It is, by the way, jubilee year of St. James, every time July 25th falls on a Sunday, and that happens following a strict sequence of years, namely the sequence 6-5-6-11. Mathematically speaking that gives us a total number of 14 jubilee years within a century. Next year will be the second jubilee year in this century - for the following jubilee year we'll have to wait until 2021.

The jubilee year of St James in 2010 coincides with the 3rd part of the Via Artis Konsort concert series Via Stellae which, apart from a number of concerts in the Nordic countries, is going to take place on selected sites along the pilgrim route, like Vezélay, France and Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Via Artis Konsort, with the support from laNiche, the label PARLA son and other co-operating Spanish institutions, has therefore decided to take part in the production of a road movie, a documentary film, which is going to follow the ensemble during the preparations and the concerts along the pilgrim route. The documentary will be an interesting blend of interviews with the organizers, the audience, pilgrims and other persons involved in the pilgrim wave, and of course the filming of the concerts.
The documentary will be ready, according to the plan, in the beginning of 2011.
