Small New Films

“Mysterious and lush explorations of the visual world… Rick Bahto’s Super 8mm films play like formalist, haiku-like postcards to distant friends.” —San Francisco Cinematheque

Since 2002, the Echo Park Film Center (EPFC) has been an influential proponent of small-gauge film, particularly Super 8mm and 8mm. This survey of handmade films affirms the independent spirit of the EPFC community in an aesthetically eclectic range of works from personal diary films to cross-disciplinary collaborations, from documentary portraiture to hand-processed abstraction. Drawing on young experimenters from the center's education and residency programs as well as artists commissioned to make brand-new films for EPFC's 12-year anniversary, the program includes films by Rick Bahto, Ursula Brookbank, Kate Brown, Paul Clipson, Hayley Elliott, Marilyn Hernandez, Ellie Parker, John Porter, Chloe Reyes, Martine Syms, Penelope Uribe-Abee, and Pablo Valencia, all projected from Super 8 or 8mm camera originals.

Co-sponsored by the Echo Park Film Center.
