A BUNCH OF AMATEURS 12a

A Bunch of Amateurs is a documentary directed by Kim Hopkins, based around a (real) group of amateur film-makers in Bradford which has been gathering a lot of fantastic reviews since its release in 2022. With the club in dire need of fresh members and funding, and working in dilapidated buildings, it follows some heartbreaking as well as life affirming back-stories with humour and affection.

Please note, we are delighted to welcome director Kim Hopkins to the screening, where we will have a post-film Q&A session.

Peter Bradshaw gave it a great review in the Guardian: “With this warm and rather wonderful documentary Kim Hopkins finds comedy in their idiosyncratic passion without ever being mean or mocking. A Bunch of Amateurs is a thoughtful film about film-making and has some unexpectedly deep things to say too about camaraderie, community and male friendship.”
