Got reels? Dusty old boxes of family films? Long-untouched Super-8 or 16mm treasures? Home Movie Day wants you to bring your stash to the Carver Museum this Sunday. Not only can you see your (or your parents') films projected on the big screen at the swank Boyd Vance Theatre, but there will also be Home Movie Day elves on hand who will inspect and repair your films AND give pointers on proper storage and care for your home movie archives.
Now in its fifth year, Home Movie Day was sparked by a growing interest in re-examining and preserving amateur films--for both their historic value and for sheer enjoyment. No less than John Waters and Martin Scorcese leave breathless testimonials on the Home Movie Day website. Also? Since the Times has officially killed hipster librarians, it's really time to start thinking about the new sexy archival pastime.
