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!
The Home Movie Day is dedicated to the celebration of cinema and amateur filmmakers. It’s the celebration of grandparents, parents and uncles who in Super8 or 16mm or any small gauge, filmed birthdays, vacations in the mountains, trips to the sea or to the waterfalls, the first steps of the baby, Christmas, and everything that families wanted to preserve in something less evanescent than the own memory. There, in those innumerable and splendid films, invariably hundreds of relatives and friends greet the camera for posterity.
The Cinema Museum team will check, repair and project the films that the public brings for the event in any analogue format: 9.5mm 16mm 8mm and S8mm.
