Porthleven and Half-cut Cinema’s open for business film
Having lived in Porthleven since I was a teenager, I have always known of its great community spirit. The recent storms in Porthleven have again highlighted this spirit. It is not only about helping others, but the people of Porthleven like to have fun too.
Porthleven has its RNLI day, the Porthleven Food and Music Festival (26th April). Both of these huge events are organised and run by the community. It is not only the big events, but many smaller ones too. These include the Porthleven Duck Race and Torchlight Procession organised by the Porthleven Community Group. Other events include The Raft Race, The Pram Race and new this year, the very successful Porthleven Lido Day. There are also a few beer festivals run by the Atlantic Inn and the Ship Inn. In truth there is always something going on in Porthleven.
Now, the businesses and community have made a short film to invite those who may not know about Porthleven and to remind those who visit Porthleven just how great a place this is to live and visit.
The film made by Half-cut Cinema, run by Danny and Amanda which has been made on a shoe string is an excellent example of this community spirit.
You cannot help but smile as various businesses and residents of Porthleven give a clear message of Porthleven is open for business and you should pay Porthleven a visit. This film just shows how communities can help themselves to make the place they live a better place.
