Milwaukee Home Movie Day
October 14 | 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
|October 14, 2023 (12–4 p.m.)||Mitchell Hall, Fine Arts Cinema Room B91|
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Archives Department, Film Studies Program, and the Department of Film, Video, Animation & New Genres presents Home Movie Day. Community members from Milwaukee and surrounding cities and counties are invited to participate. The public is invited to bring in their home movies in 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, VHS, Mini-DV, or digital formats to have their materials inspected and/or repaired by UWM volunteers and screened for an audience while the owner narrates. The event is open to people who want to simply watch other people’s home movies as well.
Throughout the day, volunteers will provide quick explanations on how to care for film, video, and digital files, ideas on where to get old media transferred, tips for choosing a vendor, and other subjects. There will also be a recurring raffle and interactive games such as Home Movie Day Bingo, where participants will identify objects on screen for prizes!
Films will be screened on a first come, first served basis as projectors become available.
