She said: ‘In addition to showing a broad array of films from around the world, enhanced with guest speakers and themed exhibitions, we will be running film making classes for all ages and host local film making competitions.

‘Film-making workshops will encourage students to produce their mini-stories and share them with the public.

‘At the Glass House we will resume the I AM ONLY HUMAN II class for 17 young adults telling stories on film about how crime in Portsmouth affects them and their peers.

‘The class is being conducted in partnership with Hampshire Constabulary.’

During the summer, Portsmouth Film Society held screenings across the city including in the Guildhall and near The Bandstand in Southsea, with more than 120 people attending an outdoor screening of The Greatest Showman.
