Home Movie Day 2018!
Projectors Provided, You Bring the Movies
Share. Learn. Timetravel.
We are excited to celebrate Home Movie Day this year on October 20th!
BYU Library’s Special Collections has offered to sponsor this celebration.
Home Movie Day is a nationwide celebration and sharing of Home Movies. Bring yours, see others, tell us about them, learn about how to make, view, and care for these treasures!
Here are the details:
- Where: BYU Special Collections (first floor of Library- downstairs on level 1)
- When: October 20th from 12-4 pm!
- What: We will have home movie format projectors set up with viewing screens for film gauges of 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8!
- Free Visitor Parking Directions: It is best and easiest to use the visitors parking at the Museum of Art. Either enter campus from 1230 N. (Bulldog Blvd.) and keep going through the roundabout, or drive south along Campus Dr. in-between the Marriott Center and the Baseball Field, and turn left at the light, also continuing through the roundabout. The library is in the center of the quad, look for the glass atrium!
- Film Drop Off: It is safe to project film that is in good condition. But a pre-inspection is required before viewing. In order to view film on the day of the event, we encourage you to bring your film in during the week of October 15-19 so that our experts can perform an inspection. Special Collections is open from 8am-9pm all week. We have a film drop-off form that will ensure that we get your film back to you. You can bring your film on Saturday, but to maximize our viewing time, dropping it off early makes it go more smoothly!
- Why: We love these old formats! We love sharing home movies! We love helping you know what to do with older formats!
