Saturday, October 16th 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 2021, while also looking forward to the return of some in-person or hybrid gatherings when and where they are safe.

If you're ready, you can SUBMIT YOUR HOME MOVIE DAY EVENT HERE! Please note that it takes up to 24 hours for your event to appear below once it's submitted, so please check back. And for more info:

You can browse events from the list below (use the square icon to customize your view) and click for details and links to film screenings, workshops, and interactive community events happening throughout the year. Many 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.

If you are interested in hosting a Home Movie Day event, get started by reading our How-to Home Movie Day 2021, where you’ll find instructions and a link for submitting your event.

Home Movies for the Holidays

December 7, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

Virtual Event

This year, DC Public Library will be holding a virtual, holiday-themed Home Movie Day. We will screen an edited compilation of locally submitted home movies, followed by a live home movie preservation Q&A with DC Public Library’s Memory Lab Network Project Manager, Siobhan C. Hagan.

Have you uncovered a holiday home movie deserving of the world’s adoration? Thanksgiving at your Aunt’s house? Christmas morning 1988? Spinning dreidels with your cousins? A Y2K party? If you have a digital file of this treasure, please fill out this form and follow directions to upload your file.

Please note – by sharing your video file, you are certifying that you own the copyright to the content and grant DC Public Library permission to exhibit it. Any part of your submission may be used in the promotion of the event.

To attend the virtual event, please register here. If you have any questions, please e-mail us.
