A Bunch of Amateurs

1h 35m Documentary 2022

Growing old amid flickering memories and teetering on the brink of survival, BRADFORD MOVIE MAKERS, Britain’s oldest amateur film-making club, pulls out all the stops to save their ancient clubhouse from its final reckoning in this quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly that speaks to the delusional dreamer in us all.

“A thoughtful film about film-making and has some unexpectedly deep things to say too about camaraderie, community and male friendship – though there are a couple of women in the club’s ageing membership.” ~Cath Clarke, The Guardian

“As this terrific and very moving documentary shows, the society, fuelled by bickering, biscuits and cinephilia, is a lifeline for its members, who weather bereavements, loneliness and fiercely argued creative differences within its peeling walls. Lovely stuff.” ~Wendy Ide, The Observer
