Home Movie Day is an international celebration of amateur films, designed to provide a showcase for home movies, student films and other forms of amateur media.

Home Movie Day is an international celebration of amateur films, designed to provide a showcase for home movies, student films and other forms of amateur media while also providing a gathering to discuss best practices for film and digital media preservation. Look through your attic, dig through your closets, call up Grandma and search out your family's home movies. Bring 8mm, Super8mm, 16mm film, VHS and Video8/Hi8 video tape (sorry, no slides) to see your movie projected. Or just show up and watch the films of others. It's not just historically significant, it's fun! Raleigh's A/V Geeks Transfer Services will transfer attendees' film to digital formats for free at the program--first come, first served.
