Dear Diary: What If Women Ruled The World? The Fall 2018 EPFC Youth Filmmaking Workshop

10 CONSECUTIVE SATURDAY MORNINGS 10 AM  – NOON, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 15

Dear Diary: What if women ruled the world?

We ask this question as a starting point to reexamine the history of non-fiction filmmaking. Using only works made by women-identified artists and filmmakers, we will focus on viewing and discussing works that emphasize personal lived experiences and perspectives as the source for art. We will watch works along the spectrum of non-fiction filmmaking, from experimental to diaristic, and from the observational to documentary. Students in the class will all produce their own non-fiction personal films, discovering how their own lives and experiences can be a powerful source for making art.

Instructors: Dicky Bahto and Penelope Uribe-Abee

This class is FREE to teens ages 12 – 19 with all instruction, materials and equipment provided at no cost by EPFC. Participants must be willing and able to attend ALL 10 SESSIONS!

A mandatory orientation session for all participating students and their parents/guardians will take place at EPFC at 10 am on Saturday, September 15.

 

Bookings are closed for this event.

ACTION! presents DON’T BE AFRAID TO SHARE: INTIMIDATION NOT WELCOME... a DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP WITH BARBARA MCCULLOUGH

Barbara McCullough will offer a 2-day workshop at the Echo Park Film Center as part of the ACTION! Cinema as Connection Series. The first day of the workshop will be centered around conversations of process, and her film Shopping Bag Spirits will be shown and discussed. Conversations of artistic process will carry on into the second day of the class, where participants will have the opportunity to bring ideas, and works in progress to the group to be developed. The hope is that each student will walk away with feedback and support from the group--hence the title of this workshop.
