Happy Home Movie Day!
Saturday, October 21st is the “official” HMD date for 2023, but like last year we welcome events throughout October and beyond – any day can be Home Movie Day! As many events have shifted back to being in-person, we’ve implemented a new calendar and submission form, all of which can be found at our About Home Movie Day page, along with lots of info about the history of global Home Movie Day and how to host your own. See you over there, and at the movies!
As part of San Francisco History Days, join us for a virtual version of Home Movie Day with selections of San Francisco home movies from local archives and the personal collections of HMD organizers. This year’s program will include the 1940 Golden Gate International Exposition, 1950s and 1960s San Francisco, Super 8 footage of the Mission District and various events in San Francisco in the 1970s, Folsom Street Fair in the 1990s, and more! We’ll also have opportunities for Q & A, along with presentations on how to care for your home movie collections on film and video from Antonella Bonfanti of BAMPFA and Jackie Jay of Farallon Archival Consulting.
This event is free and no pre-registration is required. You do not need a Twitch account to view and stream it on Twitch.
