Screening: Vinegar Syndrome presents ON THE MOVE plus Films by Beaux Mingus
Sunday, October 13
5 pm – 7 pm
Vinegar Syndrome is our Gong Show­-style grab bag series of short educational and ephemeral films, plumbing the depths of EPFC’s impressive film library. For enthusiasts of found footage and collage films, it’s a great way to learn what kinds of films are available at the Film Center—the weird, the cool, the good, the bad, the ugly. All films are selected purely by title around a specific theme and we won’t be previewing anything, so we’ll be just as surprised as you guys! This show’s theme is ON THE MOVE–Films about traveling, moving forward, thumbing for a ride and flying high! As always, there will be lots of snacks and plenty of silly commentary from your host–visiting Artist In Residence Beaux Mingus–and our feisty audience. And speaking of Beaux Mingus, we’ll start the evening off with a few of Beaux’s best loved short films! Free event! Everyone welcome!

EPFC Spring Youth Class Starts March 4!

EPFC | February 28th, 2015

In this spring’s youth class, Lost & Found, participants will create, discuss and explore the processes and concepts behind taking something old to make something new.

Students will actively look for footage, sound, objects and words to deconstruct and reassemble into new works of art with new contextual meaning. Students will collage together different tactile media materials: 16mm footage, online footage, found sounds and field recordings, still photographs and more. We will explore the techniques and historical examples of media art created with found objects and throughout the course create new personal works of our own, go on walks and scavenger hunts, make collages, create sampled music, video art and direct animation. All of these activities will culminate to a final screening and exhibition at the end of the semester.

The class will meet 2 hours a week on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:30 PM for 12 consecutive weeks beginning March 4. The class is free and open to youth ages 12-19. All supplies provided by EPFC. This semester’s instructors are Danny Louangxay, Ellie Parker, Miko Revereza and Mike Stoltz.

A mandatory orientation session for all interested students and their parent/guardian will take place at Echo Park Film Center on Monday, March 2 at 7:30 pm.
