Bradford International Film Festival
The 20th edition of Bradford International Film Festival took place at the National Media Museum in spring 2014. Over two decades the festival grew into one of the country's most respected and eclectic celebrations of cinema. BIFF welcomed many illustrious names from the world of film-making to Bradford, including Lords Attenborough and Puttnam, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jean Simmons, Malcolm McDowell and Ken Loach.
The festival represented cinema in a great variety of forms, genres and formats, and selected many new independent films from around the world to be screened exclusively.
Widescreen Weekend formed part of BIFF for many years and now runs as an expanded standalone festival. Widescreen Weekend celebrates large format film and milestones in cinema technology, and showcases the museum’s fantastic projection facilities including 70mm and 3-strip Cinerama.
