U.Va. Library joins more than 50 organizations around the world in celebration of Home Movie Day by screening your home movies, as well as a few from the vaults of the Small Special Collections Library.
Do you have home movies on film that you've never seen or haven't watched since you inherited them from your grandparents? Here’s an opportunity to watch them at U.Va. Library. Drop off your 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8 homemade films with the Library's audiovisual conservator between 3 and 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 at the Auditorium at Harrison Institute / Small Special Collections Library. The conservator will then evaluate your film’s condition, and if possible, show your home movies on the big screen that night. You will get your films back after the screening.
You may also submit your films by scheduling a drop-off appointment with the audiovisual conservator, firstname.lastname@example.org , or if you don’t use email, please call 924-1055 to arrange submission of your film.
Don't have any home movies on film? You're invited, too! Come watch films of your neighbors, as well as a re-screening of newly preserved 16mm prints from the Ralph W. Feil Collection. These Kodachrome home movies from 1939-40 feature historic scenes of downtown Charlottesville and U.Va. Grounds, including brief aerial shots of both.
This event is free and open to the public.
Event location is the Auditorium at Harrison Institute / Small Special Collections Library, McCormick Road (next to Alderman and Clemons libraries). Hourly parking is available in the Central Grounds parking garage on Emmet Street. Sponsored by Preservation Services, Alderman Library.
