Event description

Description

Come join us this October 21st for Trent Valley Archives' first Home Movie Day!

We have teamed up with Traill College the Cultural Studies department at Trent University for this event. Home Movie Day is a day created by the Centre for Home Movies which celebrates family memories captured on film by amateur filmmakers.

Do you have a stack of film reels or VHS tapes in your basement? Bring your films to Bagnani Hall at Traill College and see them projected in real time. We are able to project 16MM, 8MM, and Super 8 film, as well as VHS tapes and DVD's. All of the films projected will be accompanied by a live narration from the filmmaker or owner of the film, so come prepared to explain what you've brought in. Even if you don't have films to bring, it promises to be an entertaining screening!

From 1-2 PM we will be collecting and inspecting films, with the screening and live narration to follow from 2-4 PM.

If you do bring in a film, you will be asked to sign a waiver in the instance that it gets damaged during projection. Keep in mind that we may place a time limit on some films, and may only be able to project one film per person, so choose wisely! We are not screening any films in advance of Home Movie Day, so please be respectful of others who might attend when choosing which films you submit.


FAQs

Are tickets or reservations needed for this event?

No! This event is free to the public. We do ask that you show up as early as possible if you are bringing films so that you will have time to fill out a waiver and we will have time to inspect them.
