It would seem Top 10 Films’ bid to get Julia Marchese “to the ball” has worked as her GoFundMe campaign reached its target. She’ll now be able to tour with her film Out Of Print which celebrates the importance of independent cinema.
Julia Marchese’s Out of Print will enjoy the presence of its director when it is screened at September’s upcoming Scalarma film festival after Marchese succeeded in her GoFundMe campaign. The LA-based doc-maker’s film looks at the importance of independent cinema featuring contributions from Kevin Smith, Joe Dante, John Landis, Rian Johnson and Edgar Wright amongst others.
Marchese is now able to attend Scalarama, where Out of Print will play at Prince Charles Cinema and Genesis cinema, London, Duke of York’s cinema, Brighton, CCA, Glasgow, and Curzon Cinema & Arts, Clevedon.
Her film champions independent cinema and features The Prince Charles Cinema, in London, as an example of how theares themsleves cultivate their own unique communities.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you that donated, shared and tweeted about my Independent Cinema in the UK campaign,2 she said. “I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have so many wonderful people out there who believe in me. I have a hard time believing in myself sometimes, and your support truly gives me hope.”
The donated funds will also allow Marchese to start work on her next project – a series of mini documentaries focusing on independent cinema around the globe. Throughout Scalarama film festival she will be filming at different locations and showcasing different cinemas and interviewing their patrons and employees on what it means to them.
