Scalarama is an annual DIY celebration of Cinema, for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, every September.
Love films? Would you like to nurture a more vibrant, more diverse film culture in Glasgow? Whether you already organise film screenings (or want to), programme a cinema/festival/venue or have no idea at all where to start – come along to the Old Hairdressers to get involved in Scalarama 2017.
In 2016, Glasgow exhibitors screened everything from Beyond The Valley of the Dolls to a VHS Trash Triple Bill – documentaries, shorts, concert films, arthouse, action and romance – in venues ranging from a Bearsden living room to the Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre.

Scalarama’s key aims:
• Celebrating watching films together
• Reducing barriers to entry
• Linking practicing exhibitors
• Empowering people to put on films
• Reaching out to a wider audience
• Encouraging adventure in cinema
NB The Old Hairdressers is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. The plan is to cycle the locations of these meet-ups between key Scalarama venues across Glasgow (e.g. last month’s Scalarama: I Want To Be A Cinema (GSFF17) was at CCA and the next will hopefully be somewhere South). The Hairdressers is one of the few Glasgow venues that can and has easily/successfully facilitated DIY screenings in the past and continues to do so, and that’s why it’s been chosen for this meeting.
