We celebrate the bold, diverse and gritty stories of Bradford

Don’t miss these special free screenings of short films that challenge perceptions of and depict life in Bradford district, all made by people who live here.

MAKE:FILM is a Bradford Council project, supported by Bradford 2025 and Bradford UNESCO City of Film. Its aim is to showcase the talent of contemporary film-makers of all ages based in Bradford district, providing them with a platform to demonstrate the unique nature and characteristics of the district and its people.

In 2020, grants were awarded for 37 new original short films and documentaries that challenge perceptions of and show life in Bradford. Films could be on any subject, made in any style, and made using any equipment from a mobile phone to high-end kit.

As we continue to prepare the bid for the UK City of Culture 2025, we’re proud to be working with National Science and Media Museum to bring these films to the big screen in Cubby Broccoli Cinema.

Short films have been grouped into four distinct programmes to celebrate the bold, diverse and gritty stories of Bradford as well as the brilliant work of its up-and-coming film-makers.
