JIVE dancers helped get the audience in to the swing of things todayy as part of the ongoing Golden Years Film festival.

Adding a splash of fifties glamour, the dance session took place at Picturehouse Bradford, ahead of a screening of the Elvis Presley classic film, Jailhouse Rock.

Hosted by Marie McCahery from Bradford Lindyhop, the jivers were a popular part of the day’s programme as the six day film festival draws to a conclusion tomorrow.

The festival has been hosted by Bradford UNESCO City of Film in partnership with Picturehouse at the National Science and Media Museum.

It is aimed at an older audiences but is open to all.

Most events are being held at Picturehouse Bradford but there are also screenings at the Bradford Club, Delius Arts and Cultural Centre and Clayton Village Hall.

Festival director, David Wilson from Bradford UNESCO City of Film said: “Everyone absolutely loved the jiving and I’d like to thank Marie and the sixteen Lindyhop dancers for entertaining us all.

“We’ve seen some really fantastic audiences this week with more yet to come before the festival concludes on Thursday.”

The festival continued today with a screening of India’s highest grossing movie, epic romance Bajirao Mastani at Picturehouse Bradford.

This is followed this evening with classic comedy at the Bradford Club as the historic venue opens its doors to the public for a triple bill of slapstick fun from Laurel and Hardy.

Golden Years concludes tomorrow with a talk from Mr Wilson on the city’s film heritage and a screening of the new film, Goodbye Christopher Robin at Pictureville Cinema.

The film gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between children’s author A.A Milne and his son Christopher Robin whose toys inspired the stories of Winnie the Pooh.
