THE PHILADELPHIA FILM ARCHIVISTS COLLECTIVE WITH HOST PhillyCAM
HOME MOVIE DAY, CELEBRATING AMATEUR FILMS AND FILMMAKERS
699 Ranstead Street
Philadelphia, P.A. 19130
Home Movie Day, a celebration of amateur film and filmmaking.
Anyone may submit their 16mm, 8mm, or super8 home movies for screening at this
free event. They will be inspected and projected by film archivists between 6 and
9pm on Saturday, October 20 at PhillyCAM’s community media center in downtown
Philadelphia. Advanced drop off of films is preferred but films can of course be
brought to PhillyCAM on the day of the event! Contact Alexis Mayer at 215.385.0496 or lexshmex(at)gmail.com for more information about advanced drop off and the advanced submission forms.
In its sixth year locally and tenth year internationally, Home Movie Day provides a
rare opportunity for Philadelphians to see their movies that have sat in boxes unseen
and forgotten for too many years. Expect to see family holidays, milestones, and
vacations, but don't be surprised to encounter a child's masked avenger fantasy film
or a demonstration of an obscure hunting skill. The charm of this singular event is in
watching fashions change, families grow, and history unfold.
