March 2015 second birthday screening

Last week’s Portsmouth Short Film Night saw a great turnout to our second anniversary screening, and our first in the brand-new 3S Artspace. It was wonderful to be able to show the films in their best possible quality, thanks to the state-of-the-art facilities, and we’re very happy to be able to do right by our filmmakers in this way.
