Home Movie Day
Home Movie Day is an annual international celebration of amateur films and filmmaking. HMD events provide the opportunity for individuals and families to see and share their own home movies with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn. It’s a chance to discover why to care about these films and to learn how best to care for them.

Bring your 16mm, 8mm, or Super 8 films to the Vermont History Museum. Learn about archiving and preserving your home movies! Archivists will check the condition of your films to make sure they can be projected and answer any questions you might have about how to care for them.
12:30 - 1:30 pm
