This year the Bealtaine Festival will end their 3 year theme of In(ter)dependence – inspired by Irelands centenary as a sovereign nation and also in recognition of our interdependence with each other and the natural world.
The May Film Tour title A Bunch of Amateurs is a heart-warming documentary about the strength and value of community and the important support people can be to one another, bound through a passion of the collective love of cinema.
We would like to thanks Met Films for supporting the screenings of A Bunch of Amateurs
The screenings are also possible because of the support of The Arts Council of Ireland.
About The Movie:
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.
