HOME MOVIE DAY
New ways of connecting was the overarching theme for Home Movie Day 2020, bringing people together in virtual space to celebrate amateur films and filmmaking. We’re continuing to host online events in 2021, while also looking forward to the return of in-person gatherings. You can browse events from the map or list below (use the map-pin icon to customize your view) and click for details and links to film screenings, workshops, and interactive community events happening throughout the year. Most events are online, so you can drop in on a Home Movie Day anywhere in the world. If you’d like to find out how to view and share your own home movies, get in touch with your local HMD event host and explore some of the resources on this site.

Home Movie Day + Modernism Week Teaser Reel
February 15 - February 21
2019 marked the first ever HMD in Palm Springs, CA. It was a great event with lots of community participation and amazing support from our LA friends. We thought of it as a practice-run for 2020, when we hoped to partner more closely with Modernism Week (Feb 15-21) and local libraries and historical societies. This short teaser reel, which we will be pushing out on social media with the assistance of our local cultural center/independent movie theatre and the PS Public Library, features footage from the California desert and gives viewers a sense of the HMD mission.
