Home Movie Collections


[Xmas Loot, ca. 1946] – Orphan film

The Center for Home Movies acts primarily as a clearinghouse for home movie collections, finding appropriate homes for potential donors. We do also maintain a small collection, housed at the Library of Congress’s Packard Campus in Culpeper, Virginia. The Library also is home to the Center for Home Movies/Library of Congress Collection.

While we do not have a publicly-accessible database, we do try to digitize as many of our films as possible and include them in the Home Movies collection of the Internet Archive.

The Center for Home Movies selectively fulfills license requests for commercial use via AV Geeks LLC. CHM does not own all rights and many of the films in our collections require permission from the donor prior to use. Please contact us for more information.
