EPFC Youth Film Featured in A Quiet Scene: LA

EPFC | March 21st, 2021

Congratulations to Sascha Gallegos on the inclusion of her mesmerizing Super 8 Film created as part of EPFC Youth Class 2020 Vision in A Quiet Scene: LA,  exhibited on the LED screens on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center in a public installation from March 20, 2021 – April 18, 2021. Not in LA?  You can catch the live stream March 20 – 23 and vote for your favorites here:

Presented by The Music Center, Los Angeles’ performing arts center, and dublab, a community supported radio station based on Los Angeles, and in collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon, A Quiet Scene: L.A. is a free film project and screening initiative that asked the public to create an original short film that is an authentic reflection of Los Angeles during current times, using a track from Roger and Brian Eno’s Luminous EP as the score. A Quiet Scene: L.A. provides a Los Angeles perspective to the highly successful 2020 public audio-visual project—A Quiet Scene—created by Deutsche Grammophon and the Eno brothers in 2020 in support of their Mixing Colours album; this program featured short scenes shot by people from their newly found confined spaces at home in the first wave of the global pandemic.




Flashback Friday Flyer

EPFC | June 22nd, 2018

On May 22, 2016 I was part of the screening of “Sunset and Alvarado”. Our film was inspired by the original “Sunset and Alvarado” that was filmed in 2002. Students revisited the home of the Echo Park Film Center and learned about the establishments and the changes going on at the time. So much has changed!!!!! But looking at the flyer of the 2002 screening brings me joy to know that laughter, love, and food will always be staples of our youth screenings.

Super Student Saturdays (and Sundays!)

EPFC | April 3rd, 2016

New feature! Each weekend we’ll celebrate a student film from a past EPFC Youth Workshop.

For our first installment, here’s a 16mm gem from the past that’s still relevant today:



EPFC | November 22nd, 2015

Sunday, December 6: 2 – 4 PM

During this 12 week free youth class, EPFC students have explored topics about the self and what it means to express, and identify one’s self in the digital age. Every Friday LA youth between the ages of 12 and 19 would actively view and discuss the media of self-portraiture from paintings to Instagram. This screening will be the culmination of the students creative progression throughout the semester with their individual films. Join the students and their instructors Penelop Uribe-Abee, Miko Revereza and Gemma Jimenez for this special screening and reception at NBC/Universal Studios.
