Fancy getting into film or television?

The film and television industry can sometimes feel like a maze of departments and roles, so what’s the best way to navigate it and how do you get your work noticed? Now you can get tips and advice on how to make it big in the film industry from directors, writers and editors who have done just that.

Bradford people are being invited to explore more, around film and television as British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and the British Film Institute (BFI) are inviting people to attend a FREE BAFTA and BFI Film Academy Career Surgery.

The surgery will take place on Saturday 15 July, at Bradford College, Great Horton Road, Bradford with guest speakers Christopher Chow, whose film ‘White Colour Black’ premiered at the BFI London Film Festival in 2016. Also joining the event as guest speaker will be esteemed cinematographer Tony Slater Ling who has worked in the industry for 22 years. Tony’s credits include Doctor Who, BAFTA-winning series Appropriate Adult and Emmy-winning series, Generation Kill (which he also unit-directed).


This event will be followed by a free networking lunch with the speakers. The event is FREE to attend and you can book your place, which will be on a first come first serve basis by emailing
