Greetings, home movie makers and fans! We hope you will join us for our yearly screening of your home movies this Saturday, October 18.
What *is* Home Movie Day?
Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held annually at venues worldwide. Home Movie Day events provide the opportunity for individuals and families to see and share their home movies with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbor’s in turn.
For well over a decade, film lovers, film archivists and the general public have been convening in small spaces in the Boston area and all over the globe, gathering around flickering images of times of yore. Grandparents and babies, now since gone or grown, smile and wave to the camera as we watch them through the magical time machine of cinema.
Exotic and domestic vacations!
Parties, birthday and otherwise!
There is always something interesting and funny to watch, and we hope you will join us for this year’s event. The Boston area 12th annual Home Movie Day will be held at the Harvard Film Archive on Saturday, October 18, 2014.
