Bealtaine Film Club: A Bunch of Amateurs       


A Bunch of Amateurs                                        

(Dir: Kim Hopkins / UK / 2022 / 95mins)

Thursday 11th May, 1pm


Members of a working-class amateur filmmaking club, ‘Bradford Movie Makers’ grow old together amid flickering memories and challenging final years. Clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fuelled by endless cups of tea, this gently comedic, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the escapist dreamer in us all and to the enduring power of face-to-face time together, in an increasingly lonely, digital age.

Admission: free, booking advised. 

Presented as part of Bealtaine, Ireland’s national festival which celebrates the arts and creativity as we age. The festival is run by Age & Opportunity, the leading national development organisation working to enable the best possible quality of life for us all as we age.

Age & Opportunity Arts provides opportunities for older people to be more creative more often, to create meaningful participation and representation for all older people in cultural and creative life and to demonstrate and celebrate how our creative potential can improve with age. 

Thanks to access>CINEMA, Lionsgate Films and the Arts Council for supporting this screening.
