On October 20th, 2012 the annual ‘Home Movie Day’ takes place in Amsterdam.
This year, several Home Movie Days takes place. On October 20th, the traditional Home Movie Day takes place in EYE Film Institute, Amsterdam. The focus of the program in EYE will particularly be on home movies on 8mm.
For the program and more information, see:
The ‘Amateurfilm Platform‘, the great new initiative by the Dutch Institute for Sound & Vision (Beeld & Geluid), also organizes several Home Movie Days. The focus of these days will be especially on collecting home videos, made between 1980 and 2005. Like home movies, home videos are important audiovisual carriers of our past and should therefore also be preserved.
The Home Movie Days organized by the Amateurfilm Platform take place in:
- GRONINGEN: Groninger Archieven, Cascadeplein 4. Saturday 13 October, 11:00 – 17:00
- ROTTERDAM: 7th floor Engels Grandcafé Stationsplein 45. Sunday 14 October, 12:00 – 16:00
