Best Super 8 and 16mm Filmmaking Class (2013)

Echo Park Film Center

While plenty of massive film schools in Hollywood can teach you how to show off with the latest film technology, there's only one nonprofit school that offers affordable classes (generally $100, or less) in the tactile art of Super 8 filmmaking and hand-processing; 16mm filmmaking and hand-processing, tinting and toning; film projection; and even found-footage assemblage — all in classes of no more than a dozen adult students. For more than a decade, Echo Park Film Center has not only been a homey hub for experimental cinema — its screening room could be mistaken for a living room where public events are hosted on the weekends — but also an educational resource where kids and teenagers can learn film history and technique in free, after-school sessions taught by working artists, film archivists and historians. 1200 N. Alvarado St., Echo Park. (213) 484-8846, —Jennifer Swann
