A creative space to share your film, photography and creativity
Our VisionBradford UNESCO City of Film and Bradford City Council have teamed up to provide a new programme of events and content for the Bradford Big Screen. As well as providing national and local news, sport, arts, culture, entertainment and events, we want the screen to belong to the people of the city. If you have a film, photographs or other content to share with us then please get in touch. With 500,000 people on average passing by the screen each month it's a great opportunity. We're looking for content that enlightens, inspires, entertains, brings a smile to our faces — and make us proud to be from Bradford.

NOT JUST HOCKNEY
AN EXCITING NEW EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230
Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The monthly exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.

Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”

We Are Bradford - Local Stories on the Big Screen
The BBC are asking people in the city what stories matter to them. The stories featured in We Are Bradford reflect all aspects of the city’s life. Local people want to celebrate the great things about their city which aren't always part of the news. Join in the celebration of Bradford at 11.30am and 2pm daily on the big screen as we show a round-up of the stories from around the city. Here's a taste of what to expect.
This exhibition is brought to the big screen in partnership with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and BBC Yorkshire.
Please note content to be considered for the screen must be sent to us at least two weeks before the suggested schedule date. The more notice we have, particularly for events and advertising campaigns the better, as this helps us serve your needs more effectively.
