Scalarama is an annual festival of independent cinema that takes place for the whole month of September. People from across the city come together to put all kinds of films on in venues of all shapes and sizes.
Would you like to know more? Come along to one of our meetings and get involved!
This month we’re holding a special screening at Heart as part of their ongoing film and music programme, with a Scalarama meeting beforehand startnig 6pm – all welcome. At this meeting we will go over some of the basics of organising and marketing a film screening.
Wendy Cook from The Hyde Park Picture House will give a short presentation on what to do to turn a screening into an event that will engage the audience and get your film noticed.
Then Alice Miller from Film Fringe will run through the basics of planning and running an event using dvd or blu-ray formats, and explain how they approach to organising screenings in pop-up venues.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share screening tips.
At 8pm we have the Leeds premiere of a new film – to be announced soon!
Headingley HEART centre is a community venue and this event is being organised by volunteers on behalf of Scalarama to promote the showing of film in all kinds of venues.
A donation to HEART would be nice, so there will be a PAYF collection on the door.
