The Digital Institute for Youth Media (DIY Media, a program of the Little Tokyo Service Center) is offering a FREE six week documentary filmmaking workshop for teens ages 12-19 in the Echo Park area. The class will cover all aspects of filmmaking from shooting to editing – students will work in groups of two or three to create a short documentary about a social issue important to them. Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from February 15 through March 24.

While the class has already started this week, there are a few spots left for the remaining weeks. The deadline to enroll is Tuesday, February 22, 2011. Please email Tiffany at totoya@ltsc.org to join!

Classes take place in the Angelina Apartments Community Room, located at 1336 Angelina Street.

The 6th Annual Echo Park Film Center Youth Film Festival is tomorrow! There are two events, one in the early afternoon, and the other in the evening. Check out the details:
