Tickets Available To Film Fans For A Gala Screening To Mark China Film Week In Bradford
A special screening of a blockbuster Chinese romantic comedy will be open to the public and free to attend as part of celebrations to mark China Film Week in Bradford. (23-29 April)
The east meets west comedy, When a Peking family meets Au Pair, is being screened at 7pm on Wednesday 25 April at Picturehouse National Science and Media Museum. The film which will be introduced by the screenwriter, Miss Li Chunli, follows the hilarity that ensues when a Colombian female exchange student and her Chinese host family in Beijing constantly fall victim to miscommunication.
David Wilson, Director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film said: “This film works for all audiences around the world and is both fantastically funny and really enjoyable for family audiences. At the same time it gives a fascinating insight into life in modern day China. I’d recommend anyone who is free on Wednesday take up this fantastic opportunity which gives real flavour of what’s happening in Chinese cinema”.
“It’s a real honour to be hosting the Chinese delegation in Bradford following two days of meetings and events in London. We are looking forward to showing our guests a true Bradford welcome and want the people of Bradford to be a part of this special occasion.”
Bradford UNESCO City of Film and its partners are hosting a delegation of film experts including Mr Rao Shuguang – Secretary General of the China Film Association from China for events, screenings and discussions in London and Bradford from Sunday 22 April.

In the same year, Qingdao joined the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as China’s first UNESCO City of Film with assistance from Bradford.
Bradford UNESCO City of Film has successfully worked with Qingdao and the China Film Association (CFA) to host China Film Week in London and Bradford this year.
