The International Film Education Symposium runs between 25th to 26th March at University of Bradford.



The power of film to capture imagination and communicate with people is like no other. In an era of fake news, misinformation and emphasis on how we access and interpret media information, this two day symposium will highlight methods from across the world to empower and inspire learning via the moving image.

Bradford UNESCO City of Film has a reputation as a world leader in film education and delivers its own film literacy programme in partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI).

Join keynote speaker, the BFI’s Head of Education, Mark Reid, Yongsun Lee – Korean Film Council (KOFIC), guests from across the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and the UK to learn more about the power of film in education. Sessions include interactive workshops, panel discussions, and a host of opportunities to discover more about Bradford’s Film Literacy programme, Film Education in a Community setting and Media Information Literacy.

This two day spotlight on film education is part of a series of events, activities and celebrations to mark the 10th anniversary of Bradford UNESCO City of Film in 2019.
