FILM | Home Movie Day 2017 

Those home movies your parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, or friends shot while you were growing up carry a lot of value to them. There's always something sentimental about those personal movies, but even further, they're small cultural capsules of a time and place. We get a glimpse of every day life; a snapshot of the world outside of commercialized filmmaking. Home Movie Day, an annual international event, celebrates those amateur films with public screenings.

Visual Studies Workshop, on Saturday will be the Rochester location for Home Movie Day 2017. Rochesterians can submit their own Super 8, 8mm, and 16mm films, VHS, DVD, or Quicktime files for inclusion in a free screening that afternoon. Students from the George Eastman Museum's L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation and the University of Rochester's Association of Moving Image Archivists Student Chapter will inspect the films for condition and run the projections.

Home Movie Day 2017 will take place Saturday, October 21, at the VSW auditorium, 31 Prince Street. Movies can be dropped off starting at 11 a.m.; screenings run 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free.;
