Home Movie Day and Night: The 24-Hour Home Movie Marathon
The Center for Home Movies has begun organizing “Home Movie Day and Night: The 24-Hour Home Movie Marathon” and is seeking input from archives, collectors, and other home movie aficionados. The goal is to have a day-long webcast of home movies from every time zone. Curators and contributors are encouraged to find films that show how home movies depict life in places where they were created and what they can show about the individuals and cultures that inspired them. They should show how amateur films can be both intimate and global at the same time—showing what is unique to a place, but also universal. This will be held on October 27th, the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. Visit the project’s page on the CHM website for more information on how you can get involved.
