A movie described by its director as his “love poem” to Great Yarmouth will premiere next month.
'The Here and Now' was directed by Richard Harrison, who was born in the seaside town.
A film and media studies teacher at Lowestoft Sixth Form College, Mr Harrison said he had always wanted to make a feature film.
Shot on location along the seafront and other local landmarks over eight days, the film tells eight stories of friendships and relationships.
"I like to think we took some of Yarmouth's beauty and we show it off," Mr Harrison said.
"I've always felt Yarmouth gets a bad press.
"It was my visual love poem to Yarmouth, saying actually this is a wonderful place."
