Home Movie Day

Show 'em if you got 'em; all we had growing up were some "Polarvision" things that never worked. Flip Video, though, is great and an absolute must for parents.


Light Industry
177 Livingston Street, Brooklyn

Saturday, October 16
1pm - 7pm

A celebration of amateur filmmaking held annually at venues worldwide, Home
Movie Day is an opportunity for individuals and families to dig out their
home movies and share them with an audience. It's also a chance to have your
prints and tapes inspected by archivists and learn about their long-term
care and preservation. Stop by for half an hour or hang out the whole day!

Bring these formats and we'll do the rest:
FILM: 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm
VIDEO: Hi-8mm and VHS

"There's no such thing as a bad home movie. These mini-underground opuses
are revealing, scary, joyous, always flawed, filled with accidental art and
shout out from attics and closets all over the world to be seen again. Home
Movie Day is an orgy of self-discovery, a chance for family memories to
suddenly become show business. If you've got one, whip it out and show it
now." - John Waters
