Echo Park Film Center Screening March 21st
If you are in Los Angeles, Filmmakers Alliance will be hosting their regular screening series at Echo Park Film Center on March 21st beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Come and see what FA members and other members of the LA and global filmmaking community are up to creatively, and support the great work that the EPFC people are doing in our community. The center is a volunteer run organization that offers fantastic super 8mm film classes, youth classes, and much more, so we do ask that you leave a $5 donation at the door to help keep the Center going.
There is a brief Q&A after each film, not to mention complimentary food & drinks. So come on out and eat, drink, connect and watch!
