Bradford Small World Film Festival 2016 People's Panel. City Hall, Bradford. 22.06.16

Bradford UNESCO City of Film held its Small World Film Festival this month, bringing together stories from across the globe to Bradford’s City Park.

This is the second year of the festival which received film entries from all corners of the world. This year, Bradford launched ‘The People’s Panel’ to judge which films would receive special recognition at the festival.

Festival director David Wilson said:

“We had a brilliant evening and I was bowled over with the enthusiasm and energy of our wonderful panel.  We had a really enjoyable and challenging time picking the winners as the quality and creativity of our filmmakers was so high”.

Panel member Rebecca Crabtree said:

“It’s been a really enjoyable evening and the films covered such a variety of subjects giving us insights into all different sorts of worlds which I really liked”.

Nasrina Malik who also sat on the panel said:

“It’s been absolutely brilliant sitting on the People’s Panel. It’s been an event for all ages with both young and old here.  I was able to bring my elderly mum to the event and together we really enjoyed watching and voting for the films. It’s been a wonderful experience to share and we’d like to see more of these events in Bradford”.
