From 4th to the 6th of March 2015, Bradford City hosted a three day international film summit.
The summit staged a series of seminars, events and screenings to discuss film and TV production and education, set against the backdrop of this film-loving city.
Following the prestigious award of the United Nations Education Social and Cultural Organisation’s City of Film status in 2009, Bradford has used the transformational power of film to help drive social and economic change.
Delegates from each of the UNESCO Cities of Film, Bradford, Sydney, Busan & Sofia were in attendance along with leading film industry professionals, academics, policy makers and members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. The summit discussed innovative ways to expand the role of film in society for cultural and economic benefit.
Declan Gibbons, Manager of Galway Film Centre & Gary McMahon, Communications Officer of Galway City Council were both in attendance and caught up with David Wilson, Director of of Bradford UNESCO City of Film, for a quick interview.
