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 heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the city's annual film festivals.
I firmly believe there has never been a better time to be studying media & film studies. Whatever your interest, whatever your interest, whatever your experience, A Level Media Studies and A Level Film Studies has the resources, the facilities, the support and, crucially, the passion to help you to develop, make and share your work.
Bradford College has strong ties with 'City of Film' and their Director David Wilson. David and his team represent the city on an international level as part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, who work to bring about positive social and economic impact for the people of Bradford, and ensure all are realising the benefits of its status as the world’s first UNESCO City of Film.
David Wilson commented:
"Whatever your age, level of interest or experience there are many opportunities to learn about media and filmmaking in Bradford."
In addition to our film heritage credentials Bradford also boasts a number of key film festivals including Bradford International Film Festival and Bradford Animation Festival and is home to the National Science & Media Museum.
Bradford College has always enjoyed a close relationship with the National Science & Media Museum, where A Level Media and A Level Film students can attend exhibitions and events throughout the year and use the unrivalled archive resources in their research.
Volunteering at the Museum is a great opportunity for you to gain skills and experience, meet new people and fuel your pasion for film, photography, television and new media.
