Lost Angeles Pilot Screening

Echo Park Film Center

September 27, 2018

For our first LA screening of the pilot, we chose a venue whose mission reflects the big ideas of our series.  Echo Park Film Center is a non-profit media arts organization committed to providing equal and affordable community access to film/video resources.  "We feel it is imperative that more members of marginalized communities become active participants in the creation and dissemination of experimental and documentary film in order to truly share the many powerful voices and visions that make up the fabric of contemporary life. With a special focus on “at risk” youth, EPFC programs and services use cinema as catalyst to inspire, educate, and empower communities." T

Chicago Pilot Screening

Oak Park International Film Festival

September 15, 2018

Our Pilot Episode of Belonging in the USA will be shown at this film festival along with several other inspiring pieces.

The theme for the 2018 Oak Park International Film Festival is “Reel Resistance.” This cinematic subject allows for intense investigation of the ways that individuals, collectives, and institutions foment change. From the spoken word to scientific intervention, we consider the reasoning and actions that critique and disrupt systems of hierarchy and oppression in film. Through this visual inquiry, we seek to provoke debate, confront convention and promote actions of social justice and civic engagement in the Festival’s unique form of “civic cinema.”  It’s free and open to the public.
