Bradford City of Film is holding a competition to attract film-makers of the future.

The City of Film scheme, a partnership between Bradford Council, Screen Yorkshire and the National Media Museum, is inviting proposals for short films addressing the theme Made in Bradford.

Films can be of any genre including fiction, animation and documentary, and are open to people who live or work in the Bradford district and are over the age of 18.

The five best proposals will be given a budget of £1,000 each with the finished films being screened at a special awards event at Bradford Playhouse later this year.

The deadline for proposals is noon on Tuesday, March 17, with the successful commissions announced the following week.

The films should be completed by the end of April.

City of Film project manager Nigel Rice said: “Bradford City of Film is committed to helping local film-makers develop their skills and broaden their experience.”

Application forms can be found on the City of Film website at or on Fabric’s website at
