Durham, NC – Durham County Library presents Home Movie Day on Saturday, February 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd, Durham, NC 27707. Share your own home movies, watch others’ and have the chance to convert your old films to digital formats! This event is free and open to the public.

Home Movie Day is an international celebration of amateur films, designed to provide a showcase for home movies, student films and other forms of amateur media while also providing a gathering to discuss best practices for film and digital media preservation. Look through your attic, dig through your closets, call up relatives and search out your family’s home movies. Bring 8mm, Super8mm, 16mm film, VHS and Video8/Hi8 video tape (sorry, no slides) to see your movie projected. Or just show up and watch the films of others. Raleigh’s A/V Geeks Transfer Services will transfer attendees’ film to digital formats for free at the program as time permits, accepting materials to be evaluated for digitization until 4:30 p.m.

This program is sponsored by the Durham Library Foundation. For more information, call 919-560-0268 or visit durhamcountylibrary.org.
