It’s time for North Carolina Archives Week again! To launch our week-long celebration at the State Archives we are hosting Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 17, from 1 pm-4 pm in the auditorium on the 1st floor.
Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur home movies created not by professional filmmakers, but by individuals, families, or groups. Home Movie Day will take place worldwide on October 17, so join us in Raleigh to view movies and bring your own family films to share (8mm, super8 and 16mm—sorry, no video). Share in a discussion with archivists and film professionals about the care and preservation of these unique records. There is free parking right across the street from our building on Saturdays so please come out to see us.
This event is co-sponsored by the Film Studies Program at NCSU, the North Carolina State Archives, and A/V Geeks Transfer Services. For more information visit the Home Movie Day Raleigh 2009 website. Click on the image to see a larger version of the Home Movie Day Flyer (flyer courtesy of AV Geeks).
