About the Festival

The Co-operative Film Festival is one of the longest

running film festivals in the country and a huge

celebration of young people’s creative filmmaking.

Since 1966, The Co-operative has given thousands

of young people the exciting opportunity to see their

work on the big screen in front of a live audience.

The festival is an inspiring and unique experience aimed

at encouraging young people to co-operate, develop creativity

and express themselves and can stimulate a successful career in

the film and media industry from an early age.

Come along and watch a diverse range of fun, inspirational and

thought-provoking films from animation, drama, documentary

and more, all made by people aged 22 and under. If you dream

of becoming a filmmaker, want to be part of a production, or have

a real passion for films then this is the festival for you - there

really is something for everyone!

And what’s more, for 2013 The Co-operative is teaming up with

Bradford’s award-winning National Media Museum to make this

year’s festival bigger and better than ever before! It gives so many people

the opportunity to show

their talents and showcase

what they’re really great at.

BYFA

The Co-operative British Youth Film Academy (BYFA) is the UK’s

only co-operatively run film academy. Owned by its member

colleges and universities, it delivers activity-packed Summer

Camps, focused on the production of a full-length professional

feature film, as well as year-round educational opportunities.

BYFA is open to all young people (14-25), regardless of

background, contacts or experience.

At BYFA Summer Camps, students work with professional film-makers on a real film set

– activities include camera, grip, lighting, sound, music, art, acting, production and post

production. They are given the opportunity to gain the skills, confidence and hands-on

experience to develop and grow, both as people and film-makers. And the quality of the

film produced is great too – BYFA’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

premiered at the 2011 Raindance Film Festival.

To discuss opportunities with BYFA, email BYFA@co-operative.coop
