Scalarama takes places every year between 1st and 30th September.

2017’s dates are therefore from Friday 1st September to Saturday 30th September.

Any event that takes place in the month of September is eligible to be part of Scalarama. If the event takes place before September but is a promotional event for the season (i.e. workshop, meeting, programme launch), please feel free to add it to the calendar via the event submission page. Unfortunately any other events outside of September can’t be included in the season – September is the sacred month!

Event submissions are now open, and will remain open throughout the season so it’s never too late to get involved.

There is a PRINT DEADLINE of Friday 21st July for events to be included in the Scalarama newspaper and to be included in any national press releases. Please submit your events via the website by then to make sure you are in these promotional campaigns. If you can’t confirm your event by then, it can still be included in Scalarama and will feature online and in further promotions, but it won’t feature in the newspaper.

Special Dates

The last Sunday of the month in September is traditionally Home Cinema Day, where people are encouraged to transform their home into a picture palace for the day and invite friends, family and neighbours round to watch a film together. Share ideas with #hcd2017 and celebrate the day on Sunday 24 September 2017.
