Event Details

Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and local history held annually at many local venues worldwide. This is an opportunity for you and your family to share your own home movies with your community and enjoy seeing their stories as well. We provide all the screening equipment, and all you need to bring is your tape or film and a story to share. Even if you don’t wish to screen anything, you can still come to enjoy the show as an audience member!

If you wish to screen a movie, please arrive by 4:00 p.m. to sign up for a 5-minute time slot. Please have your video queued up to the appropriate starting place. Limit one submission per family, but additional submissions may be screened if time allows. Only the following formats can be screened: 8mm, Super8, 16mm, VHS, VHS-C, Video8, Hi8, Betamax, DV, and MiniDV. Not sure what kind you have? We can help you identify the different film and videocassette formats. Call us at 847-870-5222. Stick around after the screening to hear about how to best care for your films and learn how you can convert your home movies digital video files at the library.
