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 1922, the Pathé company in France launched the 9.5mm substandard film system and with it the first successful home cinema. Just one year later, the substandard film system was supplemented with a 9.5 mm film camera and the corresponding raw film material. This made filming more affordable for private individuals in the early 1920s. For the 100th anniversary, we are dedicating Home Movie Day to this special format. But of course you can also come to us with any other film format. We will be happy to advise you on storing, handling and securing your amateur and family films. We will round off the Home Movie Day with a 9.5mm amateur film programme, supplemented with films brought in by the audience.
