Home Movie Day, October 18th
Via Boing Boing
Home Movie Day is October 18th.
Submit your 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm home movies before October 3 for inclusion in this worldwide home movie festival.
Local venues include the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley and the San Francisco Media Archive on Capp Street.
On the Home Movie Day website, John Waters is quoted as saying, "There's no such thing as a bad home movie. These mini-underground opuses are revealing, scary, joyous, always flawed, filled with accidental art and shout out from attics and closets all over the world to be seen again. Home Movie Day is an orgy of self-discovery, a chance for family memories to suddenly become show business. If you've got one, whip it out and show it now."
