Home Movie Day

Nov. 12, 2022
1:00pm - 5:00pm CDT

A day-long celebration of the South Side Home Movie community! Families who recently joined the archive will share their home movies publicly for the first time - join us to welcome them and view never before seen footage of South Side life in the 1940s-60s. Plus, try out our new interactive community cataloging tools, talk to an archivist on-site about preserving and donating your family films, and sign up for a family portrait at our pop-up photo studio hosted by photographer Seed Lynn. Plus live DJ, t-shirts and buttons, food and drink - FREE.

Home Movie Day is an annual international celebration taking place at archives and libraries around the world, providing an opportunity for individuals and families to see and share their own home movies with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn.
