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!
A virtual event focused on the discovery, celebration, and preservation of community history in film collections at Emory, this online presentation will showcase films from Emory University Archives, Rose Library, and Oxford College Library. Selections include footage of the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair, home movies filmed on the Oxford campus, and a home movie by Georgia legislator and Emory University trustee James Vinson Carmichael.
This event is free and open to the public; a streaming link for the event will be sent out prior to the date. Register: http://emorylib.info/HomeMovieDay
