Join the Northwest Film Center and Oregon Historical Society again this year for Home Movie Day 2015. Home Movie Day is a worldwide celebration of amateur films and filmmaking that offers the opportunity to learn about best practices for caring for your own home movies. The event is an open call—8mm, Super8, and 16mm (no video please!)—to individuals and families to bring and share their own home movies with an audience of their community. Experts will be on hand to perform light film inspection and we’ll also play a few rousing rounds of Home Movie Day Bingo with fun prizes! For more information check homemoviedaypdx.tumblr.com. To make your own home movies in the classic Super 8mm format, join the Film Center the following day, Sunday, October 18th for the Super 8mm: Shoot + Hand Process workshop (see page 11 for more info). Thanks to the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition for their support of this event.
