ACTION! presents DON’T BE AFRAID TO SHARE: INTIMIDATION NOT WELCOME… a DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP WITH BARBARA MCCULLOUGH
THIS IS A TWO DAY WORKSHOP:
Saturday March 23 and Sunday, March 24: 12 – 4 PM each day
This free workshop is part of ACTION! Cinema as Connection, a series curated and facilitated by Penelope Uribe-Abee presenting documentary films and workshops by female filmmakers of color. ACTION! is made possible with the support of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. FREE!
Space is limited with priority to women of color, LGBTQ populations, and low-income individuals ages 19-35. Call or email EPFC for more details.
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.
