Honk! Honk! It’s the EPFC Filmmobile, an eco-friendly cinema and film school on wheels!
A project of the Echo Park Film Center, the Filmmobile takes EPFC programs on the road to better serve our own community and facilitate exchanges with communities beyond the boundaries of Echo Park.
In 2007 with help from local sustainable energy and design experts, we transformed a former school bus from a diesel-guzzling hunk of metal into an eco-friendly mobile cinema and educational facility with the ability to provide free documentary film screenings and filmmaking workshops in non-traditional venues to media-marginalized populations, specifically at-risk youth, girls and young women, recent immigrants, the homeless, people of color, seniors and low-income earners. These programs provide a fertile meeting space for the exchange and validation of ideas, knowledge, and experiences, empowering individuals to share their unique stories with the world. The bus itself serves as a model of sustainability through the implementation of green technology while simultaneously regenerating the long and noble tradition of itinerant cinema.
Join the rambling cinematic revolution! Send us your films, host a screening, take a workshop, spread the word… The Filmmobile is coming soon to a park/school/community center/beach/back yard/parking lot near you!
