It's well known that before there was "Hollywood," there was Edendale, home of Mack Sennett's Keystone Studios but lately the indie film shooting hot spot in 90026/39 seems to be Echo Park Lake.

It's not like Echo Park suddenly reemerged on the live set scene following the excellent, filmed-throughout-Echo-Park Quinceañera, in fact, we're sure that numerous films have filmed key scenes at the home of the Lotus Fest and Dragon Boat Races.

Last month, it was the upcoming Winona dramedy, The Last Word and today, as captured on the short, blurry clip above, it's the forthcoming Columbus Day which may or may not be based on Charles Burmeister's award-winning screenplay. Nobody on the set would spill the beans, and imdb isn't much help either.

So we throw it to you, dear reader. What movies can you name that feature scenes shot at Echo Park Lake?
