The Center for Home Movies is once again fortunate to welcome a strong proponent of Home Movies to the team.
Pamela Vadakan has hosted Home Movie Days in the Bay Area since 2007. She manages California Revealed, an endeavor to digitize and preserve archival collections related to California history – including hundreds of home movies – from partner libraries, archives, museums and historical societies. She also teaches audiovisual preservation workshops and assesses archival collections for a variety of institutions across California for the California Preservation Program. She volunteered at her first Home Movie Day at Anthology Film Archives in 2005 when she was a student in the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation program at New York University, and has loved opening up, inspecting and sharing home movies and their hidden lives ever since.
