In June 2009 Bradford was designated as the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. The title was awarded because of the city’s rich film heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the National Media Museum and the city’s annual film festivals.
Primary aged children have opportunities to learn about film through a film literacy programme designed to improve their literacy attainment levels. Secondary aged pupils study aspects of film and can opt for Film or Media Studies courses at GCSE and A Level. There are plenty of informal opportunities as well. The National Media Museum delivers a varied and changing programme of activities and courses targeting everyone from school age to adults.
