Bigger than ever, the Bradford Family Film Festival is back! Run by Bradford Big Screen, and celebrating Bradford’s position as the first UNESCO City of Film, the festival runs throughout the month of August 2017. There will be screenings of a wide selection of family favourites and events for all the family to enjoy.
Large scale and open air, the Bradford Big Screen will have screenings every Wednesday in City Park offering a range of recent children’s movies. From Moana to the BFG, to the Secret Life of Pets, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The showings are free, with no need to book in advance. Just turn up on the day – bring a seat, bring a picnic and depending on the weather, bring either sun cream or an umbrella!
There will also be exciting and informative 3D documentary screenings at the IMAX Picturehouse at the National Science and Media Museum. Born to be Wild, narrated by Morgan Freeman, explores the incredible bond between humans and animals while the incredible 3D cinematography transports the viewer to the lush Borneo rainforest and the Kenyan savannah. If space is more of interest, Space Station looks at the making of the International Space Station, the long term effects of low gravity on astronauts and future possibilities for mankind. Will we ever make it to Mars?
There are also showings across other locations such as Cliffe Castle in Keighley and the Delius Arts Centre. For full information, see, www.bradford-city-of-film.com/big-screen/family/
