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!
If you’re ready, you can SUBMIT YOUR HOME MOVIE DAY EVENT HERE! Please note that it takes up to 48 hours for your event to appear below once it’s submitted, so please check back. And for more info:

Join ENTRE Film Center & Regional Archive in celebrating Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 2-6 PM at the McAllen Creative Incubator!
ENTRE members and volunteers will inspect and screen home movies brought to us by the community. We are able to process VHS and miniDV tapes along with 16mm and 8mm films. If you have media in other formats, especially Super8 and DV, you are welcome to bring them to the event to be evaluated. We will provide resources on how to care for your home movies, where to have them transferred, and provide information about how to become donors to our RGV home movie collection. Donors retain ownership of their media and exhibition/access details are discussed on a case-by-case basis.
In 2021, we launched Boca Chica, Corazón Grande, a community archival project focused on collecting and documenting the history and geography of Boca Chica Beach. We are seeking photographs and home movies that feature Boca Chica Beach, so if you have any in your home, this would be a wonderful opportunity to have the evaluated and digitized for this ongoing project!
Throughout the day, we will be screening the home movies brought in by the community (5 minutes max for tape media) which will coincide with Home Movie Day bingo!
This event is free and open to the public. For additional information or questions, please email email@example.com
