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!

Home Movie Day Opelika 2022
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm CDTFree
The Opelika Public Library will be hosting (so far as we know) Alabama’s first Home Movie Day on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022, presented by the Opelika Auburn Film Arts (OAFAC).
From 9-11:30, OAFAC’s technicians will teach those who bring films the proper methods of keeping and maintaining films. We will clean the films and do what we can to make these archives playable. We will also offer resources for transferring films to a more accessible and less delicate form.
After a lunch break -12:30 – Dr. Andrea Kelley, Associate Professor in Media Studies at Auburn University, will offer a brief introduction to the event.
After that we’ll show as many films as we can before 5:00. Depending on the community response, we may have to limit time so everyone can get a glimpse of their films.
OAFAC is choosing to focus on reel-to-reel films for our first go at this event. We will have a 16 mm projector, an 8mm projector, and a Super 8 projector. We will introduce VHS and other media at future events.
