Happy Home Movie Day!
Saturday, October 21st is the “official” HMD date for 2023, but like last year we welcome events throughout October and beyond – any day can be Home Movie Day! As many events have shifted back to being in-person, we’ve implemented a new calendar and submission form, all of which can be found at our About Home Movie Day page, along with lots of info about the history of global Home Movie Day and how to host your own. See you over there, and at the movies!
Boca Chica, Corazón Grande is a community archival project facilitated by Mónica Sosa and ENTRE in participation with Home Movie Day. This event is an open call for home movies (16mm, Super 8mm, VHS, Hi-8, MiniDV, etc.), photographs, and/or documents centered around the history, geography and richness of Boca Chica Beach. Collected items will be inspected, labeled and prepped for digitization for ENTRE’s archive of RGV history and cultura.
Portions of the collection will be featured as a part of Boca Chica, Corazón Grande happening and exhibited with the consent of community members in Summer 2022.
In an effort to keep folks safe, we will require that all participants wear their masks. Boca Chica, Corazón Grande is an on-going project series and we will be collecting elements through April 2022. Contact Mónica Sosa (email@example.com) or C. Díaz (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a drop-off/pick-up.
