Please join us on Saturday, October 18 from 12pm – 4pm for the 12th annual Home Movie Day. This year the event will take place in the Genesee Libby Studio (#225) in the Hungerford building. Home Movie Day is held at venues worldwide and gives people a chance to share their home movies with an audience of their community. Bring some films to share or just come to watch some movies and have some tasty treats.
In Rochester, AMIA UR and the staff and students in the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation organize the event. Film archivists will inspect, prepare, and project your small gauge film—8mm, Super-8, and 16mm. Home movies recorded on the VHS format will also be accepted. This is also an opportunity to speak with experts about the best methods to preserve your home movies. This is a volunteer-run event and it is free and open to the public.
