The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is proud to host the city of Milwaukee’s Home Movie Day. Community members from Milwaukee and the 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; with selections screened for an audience while the owner narrates.
Throughout the day, volunteers will provide quick explanations on how to care for film, video, and digital files, as well as ideas on where to get old media transferred. There will also be a recurring raffle and interactive games such as Home Movie Day Bingo, where participants will call out things they identify or recognize for prizes!
The event is free and open to public. It will take place in Mitchell Hall at UWM (3203 N Downer Ave, Milwaukee WI 53211) Room B91 on Saturday, October 15th. Community members are welcome to drop by from 10am-4pm, and films will be screened on a first come, first served basis (as projectors become available).
