Home Movie Day

Not just for family

NEW HAVEN - New Haven Home Movie Day will be an open screening from 2 to 6 p.m. October 18, at the People’s Center 37 Howe St. and members of the community are asked to bring in home movies.

The films will be inspected by trained film lab technicians and archivists, and then projected in front of an audience, organizers said. Home movies do not need to be your own family’s but can include found films, organizers said. Formats accepted are: 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm. There will be information available on how to properly care for movies, transfer options and local vendors, and fun prizes.
Organizers ask that anyone with a movie to show arrive at at noon to drop the film off for inspection and projection preparation. Also, especially appreciated would be dropping the film off before the event day , which can be arranged by contacting Molly Wheeler at newhavenhomemovieday@gmail.com or (203) 430-4157

The event is free and open to the public.
