This rousing, life-affirming treasure hilariously and movingly documents the 1932-founded Bradford Movie Makers film club, as they face the challenge of an uncertain future.

The Tyneside screening on 12th November at 17:30 includes a live Q&A with Director Kim Hopkins, Producer Margaréta Szabó, and members of the Bradford Movie Makers.

Summary of Film: "Only a miracle can save Britain’s oldest amateur film club from its final demise. Sometimes miracles come from unexpected places.

The most quintessentially British working-class filmmaking club, BRADFORD MOVIE MAKERS’ members grow old amid flickering memories and the brutal reckoning of their final years. Desperately clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fueled by endless cups of tea, this quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the delusional escapist dreamer in us all and to the need to spend time together face to face in an increasingly lonely, digital age." Made by Labour of Love Films
