Chicago Home Movie Day 2010

Saturday, Oct 6, 2010 ,  12PM-5PM

Chicago Cultural Center
78 East Washington Street
Chicago, IL 60602

Admissions: Free!

Chicago Film Archives welcomes you to a day of feasting on home movies and the many stories they contain. Dig out those 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm films that you stashed away in shoeboxes years ago, and bring them on down to the Home Movie Day event!

Make an appointment with CFA archivists who will inspect your home movies, talk about ways to care for them, and project them on the big screen. Win prizes by playing the world acclaimed Home Movie Bingo! Bring the whole family!

Home movies capture family legacies, firmly plant our lives in history, and sometimes just set the record straight. They offer moving documentation of what we otherwise can never retrieve – ourselves, our families, and our friends as we lived our lives in the tumultuous and ever-changing twentieth century.

Chicago Film Archives firmly believes that the public presentation of these family legacies builds and strengthens communities. This event is not only a celebration of lives well lived, it is an opportunity to reconsider these home movies as historical records that have value to our culture, reaching far beyond the family.

Come join us at Chicago Home Movie Day – 2010!!
