Movie Clubs were established by amateur moviemakers and collectively constituted an amateur cinema culture. Movie clubs came in different shapes and sizes: some were defined by their geographical location, others were oriented around particular activities, and still others collected users of a specific film gauge (i.e. 8mm film).
