Scalarama access presentation


Published on

Scalarama is a DIY celebration of cinema that takes place every September. Inspired by the eclectic programming of the legendary Scala Cinema, groups and individuals with a passion for movies unite to celebrate cinema and encourage watching films together.

In 2019, Scalarama Glasgow hosts monthly workshops with expert guests, exploring every aspect of screening films. These meetings are open to everyone, from complete beginners to old hands, with a view to hosting a film screening this September.

This PowerPoint assisted a presentation on accessibility from Helen Wright (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) at CCA Glasgow on Sunday 21/07/19.
