LONDON - Bradford, an industrial city in the north of England, has been named the world’s first “City of Film” by the United Nations, ahead of more immediately famous movie capitals such as Hollywood or Cannes.
UNESCO, the United Nations’ cultural arm, said it was awarding Bradford the title on the basis of its historic links to the production and distribution of films, its media and film museum and its “cinematographic legacy.”
The honor may be a surprise to many as Bradford, previously known as the “wool capital of the world,” is probably best known as a city of around 500,000 people that was once a center of the industrial revolution.
“Becoming the world’s first City of Film is the ultimate celebration of Bradford’s established and dynamic history in film and media,” said Colin Philpott, director of Bradford’s highly regarded National Media Museum.
“With the UNESCO City of Film designation, Bradford will now go on to achieve inspirational projects in film.”
While not as glamorous as Los Angeles or the French Riviera, Bradford does have a strong tie to cinema and film.
