Community Film-making in Portsmouth

on .

pfslogoPortsmouth Film Society (PFS) is using film to help break down social barriers and unite diverse cultures. In partnership with Urbond, an organisation standing for a cohesive city, PFS is creating a documentary featuring several vulnerable individuals who will tell their story and reflect on their experiences in Portsmouth, both good and bad.

A variety of short films and documentaries will be produced with people who have been neglected in our community. The project called I Am Only Human After All will premiere at a red carpet event in 2018 and be available on YouTube. The individuals are being referred by the Salvation Army, Recovery Café and Empowering2change, organisations who support our vulnerable citizens struggling with issues such as homelessness, substance misuse, young care issues, people in recovery, youth with diabetes, and multiculturalism.
