Saturday, December 5, 2015 – Late Night Marathon & Fundraiser – 7 pm until LATE!
Celebrate fourteen years of the Echo Park Film Center with films, videos, music, music videos, performances, poetry, toasted sandwiches, and more, stretching into the early hours of the morning. Sliding scale donations in any amount go towards keeping EPFC operations up and running for the year to come. Festivities begin with the EPFC Cabaret, hosted by Paolo Davanzo and Lisa Marr, and featuring Los Gatitos, Maya Abee, Michael Jefferson and Tom Duffy, Beaux Mingus, Shauna McGarry, and more! Then Rick Bahto will present a selection of works on Super 8, 16mm, video, and performance by alumni from the EPFC youth program, former LA AIR residents, and artists who have participated in his New Works Salon series, including Amy Halpern, Penelope Uribe-Abee, Jordan Biren, Kate Brown, Pablo Valencia, Ursula Brookbank, Kate Dollenmayer, Walter Vargas, and more tba! We’ll also have the World Premieres of Super 8 films commissioned by EPFC, including Janis Crystal Lipzin and Daniel Marlos. Miko Revereza will present MTV Off The TV Screen, featuring an hour of pirated music videos, dance scenes, and video oddities mixed on VHS. Beaux Mingus will host Grub Buds Film and Video Extravaganza!: The Sony AV-3400 Portapak, the world’s first portable video camera system, was introduced in 1967, and took the art world by storm. Madonna’s music video for her 1992 song, Erotica, used Super 8 film to make the footage look aged and gritty to mesh with the song’s atmosphere. A pie iron (also known as a pudgy pie or sandwich maker) is a cooking appliance that consists of two hinged concave, round or square metal, plates on long handles. In the United States, the Tostwich is possibly the earliest toasted sandwich maker, dating back to before 1920. What do all of these things have in common? Well, probably not much, but if you like to eat toasted sandwiches and watch movies, this is the screening for you! Toasted sandwiches provided by Grub Buds. Throughout the night there will be surprises, treats, and tricks of all kinds!
Sunday, December 6: 2 – 4 PM
During this 12 week free youth class, EPFC students have explored topics about the self and what it means to express, and identify one’s self in the digital age. Every Friday LA youth between the ages of 12 and 19 would actively view and discuss the media of self-portraiture from paintings to Instagram. This screening will be the culmination of the students creative progression throughout the semester with their individual films. Join the students and their instructors Penelop Uribe-Abee, Miko Revereza and Gemma Jimenez for this special screening and reception at NBC/Universal Studios.
Our spiritual friends Dublab is having their 16th Anniversary party this Friday night! Our very own staff member Miko Revereza in collaboration with David Chun will have a video installation at this event, an alternate dance floor/echo chamber room.
