Society puts on green film festival in the city

Have your say

A GREEN film festival has been announced for later this month.

Portsmouth Film Society is holding its third Green Film Festival on May 13 and 14.

Held at the Eldon Building at the University of Portsmouth, the two-day event will show films and feature local people working to raise environmental issues.

PFS chair Aysegul Epengin said: ‘It’s so important to highlight environmental issues and what better way to do this than through films?’

The event will highlight groups from Greenpeace, Fairtrade Portsmouth Climate Action Network and the World Development Movement to Global Justice Portsmouth.

The first film due to be shown on May 13 is If a Tree Falls by filmmaker Marshall Curry. That film explores the inner workings of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a revolutionary movement devoted to stopping facilities involved in deforestation.
