Bradford is the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. This permanent title bestows international recognition on Bradford as a world centre for film because of the city’s rich film heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the city’s annual film festivals.

As an exciting and powerful tool, Bradford UNESCO City of Film are working to build film literacy into the curriculum of all schools throughout the Bradford District. We have developed and delivered film based programmes across all sectors, and are looking to utilise the Film Literacy Programme to enable secondary schools and colleges to engage with the programme, whilst continuing to role out the programme to further primary schools.
