Making Waves Film Festival is a new Portsmouth film event that strives to take films out of the cinema and in to new and interesting locations around the city. The festival runs from the 26th to the 29th of September and has the following highlights plus many more films and events:
Southsea Green House – Grow Your Own
Groundlings Theatre – Back to the Future
Wedgewood Rooms – Searching for Sugarman
No 6. Cinema – On The Waterfront, Frances Ha & Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters
Guildhall Square – Mamma Mia
Royal Marines Museum – Cockleshell Heroes
World War One Memorial Centre – Archive film and Talk
The Cellars – Dinner for One Student showcase
Portsmouth Music Hub – Lion King
Portsmouth Football Club – Kaleidoscope Project

Portsmouth Guildhall – Secrets of the Tribe International film showcase & The very best of John Barry with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Head Men’s Hairdressing – Deliverance
Kings Theatre – Sherlock Holmes
Spinnaker Tower – Portsmouth Then and Now
Hilsea Lido – Modern Times
Personal favourites for starters look to be seeing Crimson Tide on a actual submarine & seeing Cockleshell Heroes where much of it was actually filmed, good stuff.
As well as the film screenings there will be other events running in parallel including workshops at Goundlings, art events at The Kings Theatre and Tango Tea.
Strong Island Media are putting on filmmaking workshops (8-12yrs and the other 12rs+) with a Sherlock Holmes theme using the Kings Theatre as the location and objects from the Conan Doyle collection for props!
All details on the Making Waves Film Festival can be found at the website and in the leaflets that will begin to appear around local libraries, shops, bars, etc in the next few days.
