Riding off its huge international success, Home Movie Day returns to Anthology Film Archives for its sixth year. If that buzzy clicking sound of film reels is music to your ears, then bring those 8mm, Super-8mm, or 16mm intimate takes of your strange, hilarious, scary (or all the above) family for everyone to see. No matter how uneventful you think it might be to display your toothless grandma blowing out her birthday candles or your daddy washing the rims of his ’60s Ford Mustang, you’ll have a nostalgic hungry audience ready to reminisce on those simpler days–pre-Internet, pre-9/11. As a bonus, take advantage of the expert motion-picture archivists who’ll be on hand to teach you how to preserve your home movies.
