Trailer for my film Out of Print 



Hallo! My name is Julia Marchese and I am a filmmaker currently living in LA. 

I recently completed my first film, a documentary feature called Out of Print,  about the importance of independent cinemas & 35mm to culture. In the film I focused on The New Beverly Cinema in LA, my former employer, as well as The Prince Charles Cinema in London as two exemplifications of how special and different every cinema is and how each one cultivates their own unique, quirky community. 


Spreading awareness of how essential independent cinemas are is my life's work, and I am ready to begin my next chapter. 


Out of Print was just chosen as one of the carefully selected titles included in Scalarama  , an annual celebration of film each September in the UK in which a network of cinemas band together to share a touring program.

I am so honored to have Out of Print play 5 dates during Scalarama - premiering at the Prince Charles! - and the theaters that are playing the film would love for me to tour with it, but the funds aren't there on their side or mine.  That's why I need your help. 


By donating, you are not only permitting me to tour with Out of Print during Scalarama, but also allowing me kick off my next project - a series of mini documentaries focusing on independent cinema around the globe. 


I will be shooting short videos at each cinema during this trip, focusing on that particular theater and allowing the patrons and employees of that cinema - the people who cherish it most - to speak for themselves and explain why that particular cinema is so important to them.

Historically, it will be a time capsule of specific time and specific place, and will continue to spread awareness of what makes each cinema significant and precious. I will be bringing equipment with me and will record at as many cinemas in the UK as I can above the five at which Out of Print is playing during Scalarama. 

Specific travel dates and budget breakdown are below. Whatever you can donate will go toward my spartan travel expenses and production costs.

If you love and support independent cinema as much as I do, please assist me in chronicling UK cinema in 2016, and increase understanding of just how neccesary and extraordinary each and every cinema is.
