This affectionate tribute to silver screen dreamers details a group of ageing cinephiles’ attempts to save their filmmaking club, including remaking a classic musical.

Formed in 1932, Bradford Movie Makers is one of the oldest amateur filmmaking clubs in the world. But continuing in this day and age is no easy task. To ensure its survival, the group has decided to embark on its most ambitious project: to remake a beloved musical. Desperately clinging to their dreams – and each other – and fuelled by endless cups of tea, this group speaks to the escapist dreamer in us all. And Kim Hopkins’s quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly highlights the need for us to spend time together, face-to-face, in an increasingly lonely digital age.
