New ways of connecting was the overarching theme for Home Movie Day 2020, bringing people together in virtual space to celebrate amateur films and filmmaking. We’re continuing to host online events in 2021, while also looking forward to the return of in-person gatherings. You can browse events from the map or list below (use the map-pin icon to customize your view) and click for details and links to film screenings, workshops, and interactive community events happening throughout the year. Most events are online, so you can drop in on a Home Movie Day anywhere in the world. If you’d like to find out how to view and share your own home movies, get in touch with your local HMD event host and explore some of the resources on this site.

If you are interested in hosting a Home Movie Day event, welcome! Get started by reading our How-to Home Movie Day 2020, where you’ll find instructions and a link for submitting your event. All of the great HMD resources from years past are still available in the About Home Movie Day section. And if you need more help or aren’t sure where to start, write to us at info@centerforhomemovies.org. We’re here to support you and help you share your home movies!

October 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

Virtual Event

Join us on Home Movie Day 2020 for a streaming program of home movies contributed by Queens residents like you! In fact, if you have captured a special event on your phone, or have digitized your family films, your home movie can be part of the screening!  Do you have a canister of film that you’ve always wanted to watch, but don’t have the equipment? Complete this form to submit your digital home movie and to reach our preservation experts who can offer advice and possibly digitize your films and include them in this year’s program. Home Movie day is made possible with the expertise and equipment generously shared by our partners at NYU’s Moving Image and Archiving and Preservation program, the NYU Student Chapter of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and the XFR Collective.
