Saturday, October 16th is the “official” HMD date this year, but like last year we welcome events throughout October and beyond – any day can be Home Movie Day! We’re continuing to encourage virtual events in 2021, while also looking forward to the return of some in-person or hybrid gatherings when and where they are safe.

If you’re ready, you can SUBMIT YOUR HOME MOVIE DAY EVENT HERE! Please note that it takes up to 24 hours for your event to appear below once it’s submitted, so please check back. And for more info:
