Eccentric Artists formed in 2020, at a time many of us needed a way to connect with each other as well as come back in tune with our creative practices. That longing for an artistic community is what shaped Eccentric Artists and what drives us to continue to grow the film collective to this day. The Founders, Jemsen Yumico Bollozos, Tiffanie Rose Ignacio, Nadine-Gabrielle Natividad, Samantha Rodriguez, and Veronica Castillo De La Vega, wanted to create a collective space that motivated and encouraged our community to "connect, create, and collaborate." We began with hosting virtual, film-centric gatherings such as discussions on movies, Livestream interviews with our Featured Artists, and online Film Challenges/Showcase screenings on our Youtube Channel as an easily accessible medium for artists to interact and spread awareness of their own work. Setting up a website and constant social media presence also made it possible for those in our community to advertise their projects and network with each other. Since then, we have transitioned to hosting more in-person events, ranging from arts-based workshops to our highly anticipated annual event: Shameless Plug Arts Festival. As an evolution to our film collective, Eccentric Artists officially became an LLC in September 2022 where we continue our mission of uplifting our film community by redefining business production standards, and creating opportunities for shared upward mobility, especially for underrepresented artists.
