Pittsburgh Home Movie Day
Bring your own home movies or watch amateur films made by others over the course of this fun and informal screening extravaganza. We invite area residents to screen treasured family archives captured on standard 8, super 8 or 16mm film. All films will be handled and projected with archivist-level care on finely tuned vintage projectors. Home movie gems from the collection of The Orgone Archive will also be screened throughout the day. Local archivists and curators will be on hand to answer preservation questions. No financial evaluations will be provided.

What Is Home Movie Day?
Home Movie Day is an international celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held annually at many local venues worldwide.
Home Movie Day events provide the 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. It’s a chance to discover why to care about these films and to learn how best to care for them.
