PORTLAND EXPERIMENTAL ANIMATION

Sunday, October 29 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.

This program premiered at the new Boathouse Micro Cinema in the docklands of Portland Oregon spring 2017. It features three experimental animators Laura Heit (in attendance), Kurtis Hough and Ben Popp, who have been working on visual explorations of our co habitation with the natural world. In the shadow of Cassini’s demise these, short films continue to explore our innate curiosity about the universe. Using technically and stylistically diverse forms that range from 16mm hand processed film, to CGI, to object and hand-drawn animation, this body of work takes us from the molten core of volcanos, to the weepy glaciers, to the blustery Pacific Northwest coast, all the way out to the outer reaches to fly by mars and its probable inhabitants. Filmmaker Laura Heit in attendance!

This screening is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

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!
