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:

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.

Questions from the Q&A will come via email and from the Twitch chat. In order to participate in the Twitch chat, you’ll need a Twitch account.
