Dust off your old films—Home Movie Day is October 15

 | 

Home Movie Day is a celebration of local amateur home movies that also provides a chance for attendees to learn how to preserve those movies for the enjoyment of future generations. Come meet with local film archivists, learn about the long-term benefits of film over video and other digital media, and of course, watch a variety of old family films.

Comb through your attic, dig through your closets, call up Grandma, and search out your family’s home movies.  Bring an 8mm, Super8mm, or16mm home movie (sorry, no video or slides) and get ready for a fun afternoon filled with the celebration of culturally-rich local heritage preserved in film.

Home Movie Day 2011 will take place on Saturday, October 15, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the North Carolina State Archives Auditorium,109 East Jones Street, Raleigh NC 27601.

Parking is free and easily accessible.
