Every year film enthusiasts are treated to a plethora of family films, courtesy Bradford City of Film and this year certainly won’t be any different, as the festival kicks off with Born to be Wild IMAX 3D tomorrow at the Imax, PictureHouse. 

Morgan Freeman narrates the documentary adventure “Born to be Wild 3D,” an inspired story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. This documentary transports moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan Savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dr. Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.

Running throughout the month of August the Bradford Family Film Festival hopes to bring a wide range of screenings and events for families to enjoy. From large-scale, free outdoor screenings in City Park to workshops and hands-on events across the Bradford District the festival promises to be a treat for the whole family.
