A free film festival for young people aged 22 and under!
Inspiring the film makers of the future
The Co-operative Film Festival has provided young people with the opportunity to air their films on the big screen since 1966, including festival patron, Edgar Wright; the award-winning director of smash hits Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, who had a film screened as a youngster.
The festival is a great opportunity for young film makers to showcase their talents and see their work on the big screen at a major national venue. You can also take part in exciting learning shows and masterclasses, watch specially programmed packages of inspiring short films from around the world and receive one to one feedback from the festival's expert advisory panel.
The 2013 Co-operative Film Festival was held in association with the National Media Museum
The 2013 film festival was held at the National Media Museum in Bradford from Wednesday 17 to Friday 19 July.
74 short films made by film makers aged 22 and under were screened in the museum's Cubby Broccoli Cinema over the three day festival. Seven of these received Advisors' Choice Awards in recognition of them being particularly strong entries for other young filmmakers to aspire towards.
Highlights of the 2013 festival can be viewed on the festival's YouTube channel.
