  • Film making
  • “Film of the Book”
  • Films associated with Bradford
  • World Cinema
  • Film Genres

..and much more. You can ENJOY books about film with autobiographies, and learn how to ‘read’ films when you’re wactching at the cinema; LEARN about film theory, history, and how you can make a career in film; MAKE film with practical books guiding you through everything from acting and directing, to screenwriting and animation, and learn more about why people VISIT Bradford because of film with local cinema history and books about films made in Bradford.

You can find the collection in the Central Library, right next door to the National Media Museum. So next time you’re going to the cinema, why not find out a bit more about film by visiting the collection on the 3rd floor of Central Library?

All the books are available for loan, and as with everything at the Library, it’s completely free.

Central Library is open from Monday to Friday 9am – 7.30pm, and Saturday 9am – 5pm, and is located on Prince’s Way, right next door to the National Media Museum.
