A FILM festival is turning green and hitting the great outdoors.

Portsmouth Green Film Festival is being held for the second year in a row and is taking place on May 24 and May 25 at the Omega Centre and Victoria Park.

The two-day festival is organised by the Portsmouth Film Society.

Together with a number of local organisations, Portsmouth Film Society set up the festival to educate future generations to look after ourselves and our planet.

Portsmouth Film Society launched its first Green Film Festival in May last year.

It brought in a range of speakers and films to the city to promote and engage with some of the important issues facing the world today.

Ayse Pank, spokesperson for Portsmouth Film Society, said: ‘I’m delighted by the continued interest in both films and green issues in the city.

‘We hope, as a society, to bring different types of film experience to the city of Portsmouth.’

The festival will be officially opened by Councillor Lynne Stagg, soon to be Lord Mayor, on 24 May in the Omega Centre, home to the Portsmouth Film Society.
