Roger Clark-Coates, General Manager of Jurys Inn Bradford commented: “All of us at the hotel consider ourselves to be ambassadors for Bradford, many of our employees have lived in the area for years and feel a great sense of pride for the city. The National Media Museum is one of the city’s greatest assets and we look forward to working with the team to leverage opportunities to attract more visitors to Bradford who love film.”
The sponsorship will see a presence for Jurys Inn Bradford on the National Media Museum’s Media Wall, website and in the Festival brochures, as well as other materials.

Rob Shaw, Head of Development at the National Media Museum commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Jurys Inn Bradford; the hotel is only a stone’s throw away from the National Media Museum and will be a perfect base for people visiting to attend the Bradford International Film Festival and other events throughout the year. We look forward to working with Roger and his team to help establish Bradford’s reputation as a true ‘City of Film’.”
