The 8 Fest is showing my film For Pablo Valencia on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at 9 pm in the Bagerooooo, five! Part 2 program of recent small-gauge films. Also in the festival are works by four young artists in the Origins class at Echo Park Film Center in the Spring of 2011, of which I was one of the teachers. Caleb Miller’s film soledad ocultada is in the Bagerooooo, five! Part 1 program Friday night at 11 pm, Chloe Reyes’ film A Celebration of Corn is in the Adventures in Animationland program Saturday night at 11 pm, and Hayley Elliott’s Solar Flares and James Noel’s Past and Present, both double projection pieces, are on the final program Sunday at 9 pm. Also happy of course to see films by friends new and old on the program, including Jason Halprin, Pixie Cram, Robbie Land, and Paul Clipson.
