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!
In honor of LGBT History Month, California Historical Society, GLBT Historical Society, and The Clowder Group are teaming up to tell the story of queer history and the struggle to preserve it with the award-winning documentary, Reel In The Closet!
Often set against the backdrop of the headline moments of the last century, this documentary is queer history from the perspective of queer people. Rare and intimate, this collection of home videos will take you into the personal and human moments of everyday queer people throughout the last century.
There will be four screenings of this film. Each takes place on a Thursday in October from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Following the screenings, there will be live Q&As with the filmmaker and LGBT advocates & historians.
