8th Annual Home Movie Day

Synopsis:

Saturday, October 16th from Noon to 4:00 PM

8TH ANNUAL HOME MOVIE DAY

The 8th annual Home Movie Day will take place worldwide on Saturday, October 16th, 2010. This free event welcomes Angelenos to share their home movies with others in this daylong celebration of amateur filmmaking.

Many households have home movies in dusty boxes or cluttered closets, but rarely the proper equipment or knowhow for viewing. Home Movie Day invites attendees to bring in their moving images for condition evaluation and careful projection by trained archivists. The Echo Park Film Center event will accommodate 8mm, Super-8, 16mm and 9.5mm film. Screenings begin at noon, and people are welcome to drop in anytime throughout the day. The informal setting encourages comments and conversation, engaging the collective memory of the audience. Capturing much more than family trips and the birthday parties of strangers, home movies are also historical documents of how a hometown used to look and the way life was lived not so long ago. In addition to the festive atmosphere of refreshments, games and prizes, participants will be given simple tips to help care for their movies and ensure their longevity.

FREE! EVERYONE WELCOME!
