Portobello Film Festival criticised for banning film

Organisers of the Portobello Film Festival have been criticised for stifling freedom of expression.

It comes after the film "Positive Hell" has been removed from the festival program as it may 'cause distress' to viewers.

This is the second London film festival the movie has been banned from. 

The film tells the story of 5 people with HIV who refuse to take anti-retro-viral medication.
