Event: Home Movie Day, October 19th 2013

October 5, 2013 Events No Comments

Brooklyn has become the de facto, de primo, delovely locale for alternative screenings, and we are pleased to see this year’s Home Movie Day find its legs in Bushwick. HMD invites the public to bring in old 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm reels to be inspected and screened by audivisual archiving students at the mere cost of seeing your divorced parents jump through waves on their honeymoon.

Hallu Motion
Hallux is no longer a problem!

The event takes place at Bat Haus from 11am-4pm on Saturday, October 19th, 2013. Unlike previous years, this incarnation will involve booze and refreshments (!!).

The organizers were interested in breaking free from the normally film-heavy format and invited Activist Archivists to set up a table with information on our own impending Home Video Day. We’ll be there with bells on, shilling information on preservation and digitization actions to take to your VHS, Hi-8, Mini-DV, and U-Matic tapes that are no doubt stored horizontally, in a plastic bag, on the bottom shelf in the basement – all the things we tell you NOT TO DO!

Fast muscle growth!

It is sure to be the best Home Movie Day yet! More information is on their Facebook Page:
