A FILM that has been inspired by the Olympics will have its premiere in Portsmouth.

The West Street Film Project is made up of a group of adults with learning disabilities who wanted to celebrate next year’s sporting spectacular in London.

They have produced Our Olympics, which will have its first screening with the Portsmouth Film Society at the Omega Centre, Omega Street, Somers Town, next Tuesday.

Project member Anthony Hunt, 22, said: ‘I think the film was a really good idea because it got people together from the same community.

‘I would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped us to achieve our goals. Our main aim is that everybody enjoys themselves.’

The team carried out filming for three days, and took two months to complete the work.

A special screening for crews and families takes place at 6pm at the centre.

A second showing then takes place at 7pm, which is open to the public.
