FILM | Home Movie Day 

International Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 17 — celebrated in Rochester at Visual Studios Workshop — brings out amateur and professional videographers alike to show off their films and learn how to properly care for them. Film students will also be in attendance to provide film inspections and to project submitted films. The students come from the Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House and the Association of Moving Image Archivists Student Chapter at the University of Rochester. Accepted submitted film forms include Super-8mm, Standard or regular 8mm, 16mm, VHS tape, DVD, and Quicktime compatible digital files.

Screenings of films will continuously run from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. To have a work presented during the day, films must be dropped off earlier and reviewed before projection. Films can be dropped off Friday, October 16, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. or on Saturday, October 17, after 11 a.m. Submissions must be limited to 5 minutes. The event is free and open to all. Visual Studies Workshop is located at 31 Prince Street. For early drop offs or other information, contact event organizer Gordon Nelson at or visit
