Home Movie Day – Oct 15 @ IU Cinema

Home Movie Day returns to Indiana University this Saturday October 15, from 3-5 pm at the IU Cinema.

Home Movie Day is an international celebration of the power and meaning of home movies and amateur film while also highlighting the importance of everyday filmmaking as a historical resource. Local residents have the opportunity to bring in their home movies and share them with the community.

Home Movie Day is celebrated around the world, so be part of an international movement to recognize these films as valuable examples of local, regional, national and international history.  This year, in conjunction with the move of the event into the wonderful IU Cinema, we will be screening a number of films from various archives on the IU Campus, including the Black Film Center/Archive, the Kinsey Institute, and the IU Archives.

This event is free and open to the public.   The IU Cinema can screen 8mm, 16mm, DVD, and VHS formats.  We invite you to come and have a great time sharing the home videos of your fellow community members at the IU Cinema.

For any further information, please contact James Paasche at jpaasche@indiana.edu.
