Join celebrated film archivist Skip Elsheimer, founder of A/V Geeks, as he hosts Home Movie Day Durham 2014 at the Center for Documentary Studies. Home Movie Day is an annual worldwide celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held at numerous local venues around the globe—people convene to meet local film archivists, find out about the long-term benefits of film versus video and digital media, and most important, watch old family films (and learn how best to preserve them).
Anyone can participate at Home Movie Day, whether or not you have 8mm, Super8mm, or 16mm home movies (sorry, no video or slides) to share. Participants can win prizes playing home movie bingo, and equipment provided by A/V Geeks Transfer Services will allow participants to get a free transfer of their film. The event is free and open to the public.
Home Movie Day is co-sponsored by the Center for Documentary Studies and AV Geeks Transfer Services.
