Filmmakers Alliance Screening at Echo Park Film Center - August 15th!

Hey, my LA peeps!

Would love to see you at our FANTASTIC screening series. Always a great party and a great line-up of films. As usual, the filmmakers will be there to give you the stories behind the films.

Films and Filmmakers - that's what it's all about!

The next Filmmakers Alliance Screening at The Echo Park Film Center will be Monday, August 15th at 7:30 pm.

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!
