The director of a documentary about Bradford Movie Makers, one of the UK's oldest film-making clubs, visits the BFI Southbank with contributors from the film.
Formed in 1932, Bradford Movie Makers is one of the oldest amateur filmmaking clubs in the world, meeting once a week to watch films and work on their own low budget projects. Once a thriving community, these days the membership is dwindling and the group struggle to keep the wolf from the door. Kim Hopkins’ hilarious and heart-warming observational documentary follows the club’s ups and downs, while exploring the enduring power of friendship and film. Winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, it’s a special and essential film for film-lovers everywhere.
A Bunch of Amateurs is backed by the BFI Doc Society Fund, using funds from the National Lottery
