LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) and EPFC (Echo Park Film Center) are pleased to present Frame Rate: Memories Digitized in partnership with Tlaloc Studios on Saturday, June 10 from 2-6pm.

Through a hands-on film workshop and screening of films by local artists, Frame Rate: Memories Digitized, intends to gather community members to engage with neighborhoods and sites around us, prompting consideration of how we memorialize these spaces. 

The collaborative workshop will begin at 2pm at Tlaloc Studios where EPFC instructors, Gemma Jimenez and Nicole Ucedo, will lead the group through a super 8 filmmaking workshop. The class will watch films made on super 8, load film, and then go on a neighborhood walk to document the historic South Central LA neighborhood on film. LAND and EPFC will process the film and share the class’s work after the program.

This workshop is for adults (ages 18-30) who are interested in learning how to use analogue cameras and explore the process of filmmaking,  prioritizing BIPOC individuals local to South Central LA.

EPFC and LAND will provide the film cameras and lead a workshop on using the cameras followed by an approximately 1 mile walkthrough of the neighborhood surrounding Tlaloc Studios. During the walk EPFC instructors and Ozzie Juarez of Tlaloc Studios will share the neighborhood history and guide participants on using film cameras to create a visual diary of the area. Space for the workshop is limited to 15 participants. Participants should be prepared to be outdoors and walking for about an hour. All equipment and material will be provided by EPFC.

Following the workshop, we will hold a screening at Tlaloc Studios with a series of films made by local South LA artists drawn from EPFC archives. Filmmakers will be in attendance to partake in a post-screening discussion. Food and refreshments will be served. This portion of the program is open to all.

Participants may attend both the workshop and the screening or just one of the events. 

Spots for the workshop are limited to 15; to join the workshop please fill out this form. To attend the screening which starts at 5pm, RSVP here.
