PFS Autumn Season is delayed


PFS is pleased to announce their limited autumn season program focusing on their most popular annual events; Recovery Festival, Short Cuts Local Film Festival and our I Am Only Human II film screenings and Art Awards Ceremony, thanks to support from Portsmouth Guildhall and Kings Theatre.

Keep on the lookout for the upcoming drive-in season.

Last year, PFS delivered their first autumn indoor program during the challenging COVID 19 transition period and launched Southsea Community Cinema while investing in state of the art film screening equipment for Southsea Community Cinema.

PFS is actively engaged in securing a permanent home and looking forward to bringing you a full program in the near future.

They thank you for your support.

There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.

The film tackles the subject of alcohol abuse, but please be aware that if scenes of alcohol consumption are a trigger for you, then please only join us for the Q&A session afterwards at 9 pm (free entry)

After the screening, there will be a Q&A session about addiction and mental health with Toni Mason from TLM Counseling Services. Toni has nine years of experience and knowledge on various issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance misuse, mental health, and physical health.
