Hour of Pearl

EPFC | September 18th, 2017

Marvelous Movie Mondays! This month we’re celebrating A Day In The Sun: New Films by the EPFC Coop and today we invite you to enjoy Hour of Pear by Andrew Kim, EPFC’s AWESOME General Operations Manager.

“In Cannery Row, John Steinbeck refers to the Monterey dawn as the hour of pearl or “the interval between day and night when time stops and examines itself.” Transposed to a community of fishermen at the Ventura Pier in 2017, these words offer a new kind of insight.”

FESTIVALS WE LOVE: THE 8 FEST

EPFC | September 12th, 2017

What is the coziest, kookiest, coolest small-gauge film festival in the world? It’s the 8 fest!

“The 8fest is a festival for anyone using small-gauge to create rough little gems on film. A unique Toronto-based film festival that presents all forms of small-gauge film: 8mm, Super 8 and 9.5mm, as well as works in installation, loops, personal, handmade, experimental, animations, diaries, essays, collage, cut-ups, performance/film, music/film and ‘proto-cinema devices’ like zoetropes.”

You too can be part of the magic… submissions are due September 30 for the 2018 festival, happening in Toronto on January 25 – 28. More info here!
