Film-Makers Urged To Take Advantage Of The 'Best Film School In The World'

Budding film-makers are being directed to take advantage of the 'best film school in the world'.
Bradford-WWI Film School, a partnership between Bradford College and Whistling Woods International, opens its doors to students from September this year.
Applications can now be made to study at the school where the stated ambition is to be the best film school in the world.
A new pocket guide to Bradford-WWI Film School has been published which provides details about the school and the courses on offer as well as the benefits of the affiliation between Bradford College and Whistling Woods International.
The school's range of programmes are in both Further and Higher Education and cover photography, film and animation. Application for full-time undergraduate study is via UCAS; for postgraduate and FE study, students should apply direct to Bradford College.
It will also be available at forthcoming Bradford College open days where students can find out more about the film school.
The open days take place on:
• Wednesday 6 March
• Thursday 27 June
• Thursday 22 August
• Wednesday 16 October
• Wednesday 27 November
Bradford-WWI Film School director Trevor Griffiths said: "WWI and its ranking bring a wealth of history and expertise in world film and provides a truly international flavour to its programmes.
"This unique collaboration between our institutions will provide students with the skills and academic rigour to put themselves in a strong position to gain employment in the film and media industry."
The opening of Bradford-WWI Film School in 2013 cements the city's leading position as a destination for film. Bradford is the world's first UNESCO City of Film and a string of events will take place this year in Bradford to showcase the calibre of British and Indian film-making.
These include 'Bollywood Icons – 100 Years of Indian Cinema' - an exhibition marking the centenary of the first Indian feature film, running from 8 March to 16 June.
