As part of Portsmouth Film Society‘s Green Film Festival tonight they will be showing two incredibly insightful films at the Eldon Building. If you can’t get down there tonight then please look the films up anyway and watch them in your own time, as we all need to be aware of the damage being caused to the environment around the world and our own country.
