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.
