HMD_FB_2014

Do you have old home movies stashed away in your family vault? Ever wondered what’s on them, their condition, or how to take care of them? Then bring your family’s 8mm, Super 8 or 16mm home movies, VHS and Video8/Hi8 video tapes to the 12th annual Raleigh Home Movie Day, Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014. Just what might have been filmed by our parents with their old movie cameras back in the day?

At Raleigh Home Movie Day 2014, you will not only be able to talk with film archivists about preserving your movies, but you will be able to see them projected — a real treat if you have not seen them in a while. No home movies? Then come on out anyway and join in the fun watching your neighbors’ vintage movies.

Raleigh Home Movie Day 2014 — Discover the value of these unique cultural and historical documents and how to save them for future generations. Spend the day watching old films and even playing Home Movie Day Bingo. PLUS — you’ll get to go home with a free transfer of your film!

Co-sponsored by the Film Studies Program at NCSU, State Archives of North Carolina and AV Geeks Transfer Services.
