3rd Annual Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase

Saturday, February 2 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30; $5 admission
Tales of resistance and resilience, the short films of the 3rd Annual FFFS are as beautifully complex as they are diverse. Stories about immigration, displacement, and our environment, often reduced to one minute, one-sided, or oversimplified representations in news, tv and film, can quickly become a tangled web of misinformation and misrepresentation. The films of the 3rd Annual FFFS take us deeper than ever before, inviting us to rethink our perceptions. Represented this year are stories from El Paso, TX, Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Syria, Lithuania and Australia.

Echo Park Film Center and Los Angeles Filmforum present LOCAL HISTORY: A Robert Todd Tribute

The world lost one of its great poets of the moving image in August of 2018. Robert Todd was a dedicated and tireless educator, artist, and engaged community member, both locally in his home of Boston and globally with his international film family. As one of contemporary experimental filmmaking’s most prolific artists, one regular program would barely represent even a tiny fraction of his prodigious output. So instead, we’ll be celebrating his life and work with a slightly bigger fraction in the form of a five-hour marathon screening! Many very special thanks to Tessa Day and Deb Todd Wheeler for supporting this event!
