Journeys Festival International is an arts festival taking place in Leicester, Manchester and Portsmouth. For the first time this annual festival will be delivered in all three cities at the same time from 15-24th October.
JFI is a multi-art form festival that celebrates the creative talents of refugee and asylum seeker artists, sharing refugee experiences through great art and culture.
No6 is delighted to support the festival and for a number of years now have partnered up with JFI to bring some amazing films to Portsmouth. This year we are presenting Journeys Into Film an hour long compilation of shorts made by refugee filmmakers followed by Limbo. The shorts programme will start at 6.00pm there will be a short break at 7.00pm and then Limbo will start at 7.15pm.
All tickets for this event are £5.00. Do join us for both screenings but if you can only make it for one part or the other, then please do so.
Limbo & Journeys Into Film will be screening on Thursday evening. I haven’t seen the shorts but Limbo has a bold view on the world and will make you relish your passport.
Directed by Phyllida Lloyd of Mama Mia fame, Friday’s film Herself is immensely watchable and touching, it doesn’t dance to ABBA’s beat but has more to get your teeth into.
