Announcing Home Movie Day 2024!

Hello everyone, and happy Solar New Year! 

The Center for Home Movies is excited to announce that this year’s “official” Home Movie Day will take place on October 19th–the customary third Saturday in October–but as we always say, “Any day can be Home Movie Day!” There were already a couple of HMDs in February and March in Japan, and we’re looking forward to hearing about everyone else’s plans.

If you are ready to submit your Home Movie Day event, you can do so with this form. You can find information about hosting or volunteering at Home Movie Day in the Host HMD section of the website. Use the hashtag #HomeMovieDay2024 and tag us on your social media posts so we can help spread the word: @centerforhomemovies (Instagram) @TheCenterforHomeMovies (Facebook). And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us: info@centerforhomemovies.org!

We’ll also be hosting a virtual gathering in May to share resources, questions, and information. Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Home Movie Day (check out our dance party video!), and now we’re looking ahead to what the future of this beloved tradition could hold. There are still so many people and communities with home movies in need of preservation and celebration–what new ways can we find to welcome them? Bring your brunch and your ideas, big or small, wild or mild! Everyone is welcome, even if you aren’t planning a Home Movie Day this year.

Information for the May gathering is below. More dates to come – we’re planning to make this a monthly thing between now and October. 

Home Movie Day Brainstorm Brunch:

Wednesday May 8th, 9am Pacific / 12pm Eastern. Zoom meeting link

(If this time doesn’t work for you, please reach out and we’ll find another time to meet individually)

We hope to see you there!
