Marvelous Movie Mondays: Eaton Canyon

EPFC | September 25th, 2017

Marvelous Movie Mondays! It’s our final week to celebrate A Day In The Sun: Films by the EPFC Coop and we’re giving a super special shout out to the fabulous Ms. Kate Lain, charter Coop member and the creator/curator/champion of Marvelous Movie Mondays! Thanks for all you do, Kate, in bringing the global experimental community together here each week!

Let’s enjoy a nature break with Kate’s film Eaton Canyon (1.2 miles in 50 feet).

Traces of what has come before imbue the present. In Eaton Canyon, one of the most trafficked hiking destinations near Los Angeles, you can find a multitude of traces of its own making—traces of geologic change, of jurisdictional decisions, of plant and animal life, of constructions built to last but now left as ruins. This suite of works is imbued with traces not only of a particular moment in this canyon, but also of their own making.

Born and raised in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Kate works in a variety of media including digital video, super 8 film, photography, paper, clay, and fabric. She is interested in intersections—of human and nature, myth and lived experience, feminine and masculine. Her video and film work verges on documentary and spans a wide range—from essay film to stop-motion collage to impressionist portrait. She has an MFA in Science & Natural History Filmmaking, and her works have screened at festivals and venues internationally.

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!
