The Railway Children was shot near Bradford in 1970
The city of Bradford has been chosen to become the world's first-ever city of film, it has been announced.
The accolade has been awarded by Unesco, the arm of the United Nations which promotes culture.
The city is being recognised for movies made in the city and its museum dedicated to film.
Initially, the award is only a title, but those in the movie business in West Yorkshire said they hoped it would bring benefits to the city's economy.
Billy Liar and even part of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life were made in Bradford.
The Railway Children was filmed on the nearby Keighley and Worth Valley Railway in 1970.
The city is home to the National Media Museum and has several film festivals throughout the year, with Bollywood stars also often visiting the city.
Simon Beaufoy, the screenwriter for the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, said the accolade was "superb news" for his hometown.
He said: "Not only has Bradford played a crucial role in the story of cinema and helped shape its history, it has inspirational plans to enhance its future relationship with film, which will benefit both the local community and the industry at large."
