Home Movie Day with MIPoPS
** Free event! Suggested donation: $7–12 **
Join Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound (MIPoPS) for HOME MOVIE DAY 2018!
Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held locally and across the globe. On Home Movie Day, we recognize the value of each person’s ability to tell their own stories. We celebrate the democratization of filmmaking and of recording our personal histories. We laugh at seeing ourselves in the bathtub as a baby. We cry hearing the voices of loved ones who have passed. We eagerly shout, “I remember that!” as our stories come to life again on the screen. Home Movie Day is an opportunity to watch, talk about, and take care of home movies. Join MIPoPS for an Antiques Roadshow-style event, where film and video experts can answer your questions on how to protect and preserve your home movies.
Join MIPoPS at Northwest Film Forum for:
- Ask an Audiovisual Archivist! Bring your film or videotapes down to talk to a film or video expert about format identification, basic preservation and conservation actions, and digitization options! We will not be digitizing any film or video at this event.
- Moving Image Discovery Station! Check out our collection of film and video formats from over a century of film and video history. Chat with an Audiovisual Archivist or reminisce over obsolete formats!
- Take home a swag bag including resources on audiovisual and digital preservation, a list of local resources for film and videotape digitization (and coupons!), archival Q-tips for cleaning, pH strips for monitoring off-gassing in film, and more!
