Centre provides a free service to support film & TV production in the region.

The Bradford Film Office has relaunched.

Based in the world’s first UNESCO City of Film, the office provides a free service to support film & TV production in the area.

Services range from providing assistance and advice on the best places to shoot, local crews and services such as hotels and catering, as well as helping to ensure that productions run smoothly thanks to close links with the local council, businesses and property owners.

The team also work closely with Creative England and their crew and locations database.

The Bradford Film Office also has access to office space in the historic part of the City (Little Germany) for production companies looking for a base in Yorkshire with easy access to the motorway and Bradford’s two train stations.

David Wilson [pictured], director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film, commented: “Bradford is using our UNESCO City of Film status to work with partner organisations and businesses across the City to ensure a true film-friendly response to filming requests. We will go the extra mile to ensure that productions get the full support that they need.”

“David and the team at Bradford UNESCO City of Film were extremely helpful with support for The Selfish Giant. Negotiating with key agencies in the City to allow access to various locations and providing support with office accommodation and even assisted with a cast and crew screening at the National Media Museum in Bradford,” added director Clio Barnard.

Recent productions shot in Bradford include TV series The Great Train Robbery and Peaky Blinders, and films such as Cannes 2014 title Catch Me Daddy.
