Short film showcase displays Portsmouth’s talents

Have your say

Portsmouth Film Society is looking for the city’s brightest film makers.

The group’s Shorts Cut film festival is a platform for enthusiastic directors to display their work to a wider audience.

The competition is run in partnership with The News and the winner of the award will be automatically entered into January’s Guide Awards.

In previous years, the films which have been submitted featured entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking movies in a range of genres.

The society is looking for film-makers in the area to display a unique and compelling story, whether it be through animation to documentary, comedy or drama.

All the submitted entries must be no-longer than 15 minutes to be considered for the shortlist.

The films chosen by the volunteer group will all be screened at the Eldon Screening Theatre at the University of Portsmouth in Winston Churchill Avenue on November 5.

The deadline for submissions is, September 25, and the society is still looking to gather as many short films as they can.
