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.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
