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!
We’re excited to be (virtually) hosting Emory University’s second Home Movie Day!
This online event is an opportunity to explore interesting films from Emory’s collections, consider film as a window into community history, and learn about the work of film preservation.
The program will feature Emory Libraries audiovisual conservator Nina Rao and Rose Library senior collections archivist Laura Starratt, who will share film clips from the Rose Library’s William Levi Dawson and James Vinson Carmichael papers as well as tips on how to care for home movies.
