AS A member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, Denia is participating in Bradford’s Small World Film Festival throughout June.
The film festival is open to all members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and the theme of the 2017 edition is ‘My City’.
Denia’s short film focuses on the famous Red Gamba and fuses the art of gastronomy with music – two arts very rooted in the cultural tradition of the city.
The video will screen throughout June on a large outdoor screen, located in the city centre of Bradford, with a potential audience of 500,000 people.
The video will also screen at the University of Bradford.
Bradford is the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. This permanent title bestows international recognition on Bradford as a world centre for film because of the city’s rich film heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the city’s film festivals, filmed related events and unique approach to learning about film and learning with film.
Participation in the Bradford Small World Film Festival sees the gastronomic and cultural values of Denia travelling to European and international scope, which, in the words of the city council, creates ‘a very positive impact for the promotion of the city.’
The winning five films chosen by the jury will be screened at the UCCN XI Annual Meeting to be held in Enghien-les-Bains, France, from June 29 to July 2 2017.
