The Unit

A space for content creators and filmmakers in the Bradford district

The Unit is a new open-access production space in the Bradford district, launched officially on 16 March 2022.

Backed by Channel 4 and Bradford Council and delivered as a partnership between Impact Hub Bradford and Keighley Creative, The Unit is:

  • A hub for the district’s already accomplished filmmakers and content creators.
  • A place to improve opportunities for sustainable employability in commercial TV and film production, as well as digital short form.

The Unit aims to be a hub of production, learning, and supported and targeted networking for filmmakers and content creators in the Bradford district.

Whether by providing production support through equipment loans, post- production facilities, or meeting spaces or whether through workshops with industry leaders from companies like Channel 4, The Unit has a goal of helping to carve pathways to employment in the creative industries for users of the space.

The Unit will provide full-service editing bays, high quality production equipment, and meeting and screening areas for self-scheduled events as well as The Unit’s own programme of events and workshops.

Where Is The Unit?

  • From March to September 2022 – at Impact Hub Bradford.
