Home Movie Night at the Storefront Library
Saturday, December 5, 5:00-8:00pm. Here’s anÂ Event Flyerâ€”help us spread the word.
This event is brought to you by the Boston hosts of the annual nationwide Home Movie Day. Home Movie Day celebrates amateur film by inviting people to bring their films to be screened. We will show film on super 8, 8mm, and 16mm, as well as DVD and VHS (limit 5 minutes, and tapes must be cued ahead of time). Local film archivists will be on hand to discuss home movie preservation. If you donâ€™t have films to show, come down and watch someone elseâ€™s! Check-in with your films at 5pm; Films will screen 6-8pm. Refreshments provided. For more information, contact Amy Sloper, Harvard Film Archive Assistant Film Conservator at 617-496-8394, or firstname.lastname@example.org
From the folks at Home Movie Day:
Why home movies? Â Because these little films, or your grandma’s, orÂ the ones you found at the junkyard, are unique and personal,Â potentially interesting, funny, pretty, fascinating and strange, andÂ certainly worth a watch. Â Be the star of the show! Â Home Movie DayÂ provides the opportunity for individuals and families to see and shareÂ their own home movies with an audience of their community, and to seeÂ their neighbors’ in turn. It’s a chance to discover why to care aboutÂ these films and to learn how best to care for them.
