And in 2013, the name Scalarama was born!

Wanting to go further beyond, Scalarama was chosen as a name to pay tribute to the Scala heritage but to also be its own thing – a wide-ranging season that is made by the people involved.

This year saw the launch of a successful crowdfunding campaign (see the video above… cringe!) that connected with donors across the UK, and the solidification of the Core and Open Programme concepts – a Core programme of titles from distributors and archives that will help connect cinemas and film clubs across the UK, and the Open programme where people can show whatever they want, helped by discounts from distributors.

Along with the crowdfunding, Scalarama 2013 was also supported by Staropramen.
