HOME MOVIE DAY 2022
Saturday, October 15th 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 2022, while also welcoming in-person or hybrid gatherings when and where they are safe. We partnered with the Bay Area Video Coalition to produce a how-to guide for hosting virtual events – check it out below!

HMD-LA is stoked to be back for our first in-person Home Movie Day in a few years! Hosted again by LAasSubject’s Archives Bazaar on the USC campus (Doheny Memorial Library, Friends Lecture Hall), archivists from the Academy Film Archive, UCLA Film and Television Archive, USC Cinematic Arts, and UCLA’s Association of Moving Image Archivists Student Chapter will be conducting the event and providing expertise on how to better care for your films. It’s proven to be a fun and educational afternoon of screenings, Home Movie Bingo and raffle prizes.
Film drop-off and inspection begins at noon and we welcome submissions in 16mm, 8mm, Super 8 and VHS. Participants may also register and submit their media for free digitization by 10/12 in advance of the event here: https://www.bit.ly/homemoviedayla
