For over 16 years the Echo Park Film Center has been working with youth, senior citizens and adults to make films celebrating their lives, families and community! Join us at the Edendale Library for an afternoon matinee of some of the HITS!!!
Dodger Blues by Gabriel Perez – 2005 – 6 minutes – A young man’s torn passion between his love of the LA Dodgers and their deep rooted history of displacement and gentrification.
Sunset & Alvarado by EPFC Youth Students – 2016 – Group Film – 50 minutes – A documentary about the changing landscape of Echo Park over the last 16 years using the intersection of Sunset & Alvarado as the focal point of change and “urban renewal”
The Sound We See: An Echo Park City Symphony by the EPFC Co-op – 2014 – 30 minutes – This film was commissioned in 2014 by Councilman Mitch O’Farrel and CD13 to celebrate the Lotus Festival premiering to a crowd of 300 people. The SWS films (now 14 in total) have been made all over the world including Vietnam, India, the Arctic Circle and of course Echo Park. It is a 24-hour look at the neighborhood where each hour of the day becomes one minute on screen.
FREE EVENT! EVERYONE WELCOME!
