[REVIEW]

“Hopkins’ directorial style stays very close, making you a part of their conversation rather than simply feeling like an observer, it puts you alongside them and succinctly tells things from their perspective.”

[REVIEW]

“A Bunch of Amateurs is a sweet and heartwarming story of a collective of misfits brought together by a love of films. The clubhouse is much more than just a place to meet, it’s a second home. This sense of community shines through in Kim Hopkins’ film. A lively mix of dry Yorkshire humour and subtle regret pervades throughout. A Bunch of Amateurs will make you laugh and cry. And maybe, just maybe, inspire you to join your local club.”
