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!

On October 31 from 7:00-9:00 PM, Chicago Film Archives presents Chicago Home Movie Day: HALLOWEEN EDITION! This 2-hour program of home movies (& MORE) will be broadcast on Chicago’s CAN TV channel 21 and stream on YouTube. The program will feature midwestern home movies from the 1920s to today, curated from our own collections as well as local organizations Chicago Film Society, Japanese American Service Committee, and personal collections. See amateur horror films from the ’80s, a Halloween parade at a Chicago orphanage in the ’40s, a spooky baby narrating his first month of life in the ’30s, and lots of raging mid-century adult Halloween parties. Chat with CFA archivists during the online premiere!
