Wednesday 7th December 2022 - Saturday 10th December 2022

Dir. Kim Hopkins, UK, 2022, 95 mins. With. Colin Egglestone, Harry Nicholls, Joe Ogden.

This rousing, life-affirming treasure hilariously and movingly documents the 1932-founded Bradford Movie Makers film club, as they face the challenge of an uncertain future.

The most quintessentially British working-class filmmaking club, Bradford Movie Makers’ members grow old amid flickering memories and the brutal reckoning of their final years. Desperately clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fuelled by endless cups of tea, this quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the delusional escapist dreamer in us all and to the need to spend time together face to face in an increasingly lonely, digital age.

An irresistible ode, not only to the power of cinema but also the vital value of an embracing community, A Bunch of Amateurs pays loving testament to a wonderfully eclectic cast of cineastes, drawn together by a shared love of the magic of the big screen. Proudly showcasing the fruits of these budding filmmakers’ decades-long filmmaking projects, this spirited, big-hearted documentary is unmissable for film lovers everywhere.

Please be advised that the film will be played with English subtitles, at the request of the filmmakers and contributors featured.
