EPFC | May 17th, 2021
Join us Tuesday, May 18 at 4 pm when LAPL and EPFC team up to present True Stories: A Free Online Documentary Filmmaking Workshop for Kids and Teens, streaming live on YouTube and Facebook. 
Everyone has a story to tell but not everyone has the tools to tell their story. In this workshop, we’ll look at different ways we can create and share compelling “true” stories on film, exploring and celebrating family and community histories, social justice issues, and all the fascinating people, places, and things that surround us every day.
