Golden Years Film Festival Announced


This October, City Hall plays host to the newest film festival to grace Bradford. The Golden Years Film Festival, running from the 3rd to the 5th October 2016, aims to involve the older people of Bradford in the world of film though an exciting schedule of screenings, talks and practical workshops.

Bradford’s unique film heritage will be on show, with a talk from City of Film director David Wilson, and festival-goers will be able to see an example of the city’s film history for themselves in a screening of Jack Clayton’s 1959 classic Room at the Top – which filmed extensively around the Bradford area. The Bradford of yesteryear will be brought to life with an interactive workshop from Memory Bank Bradford, and on Tuesday CINAGE will be on hand to give attendees all they need to know about filmmaking in a day of talks, screenings and hands-on workshops. Students from the University of Bradford will also be offering attendees the chance to film a news bulletin or weather report – all this in addition to a selection of film screenings, discussions and the chance to grab a bite in our themed Film Café!
