The Cooperative Film Festival is coming to Bradford

For 2013 The Co-operative is teaming up with Bradford’s award-winning National Media Museum in Bradford, the world’s first UNESCO City of Film, to make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever before!

The Co-operative Film Festival is a non-competitive and not-for-profit youth initiative aimed at encouraging young people to co-operate, develop creativity and express themselves.

It is one of the longest running film festivals in the country and a huge celebration of young people’s creative film-making. Since 1966, The Co-operative has given hundreds of young people the exciting opportunity to see their work on the big screen in front of a live audience.

The Rules

The closing date for entries is Friday 31st May 2013.
