Chicago Home Movie Day 2020

Saturday, October 24, 2020; Saturday, October 31, 2020 ,  7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This year, Chicago Film Archives, Chicago Film Society and South Side Home Movie Project join forces this year to present CHICAGO HOME MOVIE DAY on CAN-TV and online. Home movies provide invaluable records of our families and our communities: they document vanished storefronts, questionable fashions, adorable pets, long-departed loved ones, and neighborhoods-in-transition. Home movies often commemorate scenes of enormous personal importance: weddings, graduations, birthdays, family reunions. Though home movies often begin as family records with deeply private meaning, the passage of years makes them compelling to people far beyond your immediate family. They serve as authentic records of our neighborhoods, traditions, and communities.

This year, CFA, Chicago Film Society, and South Side Home Movie Project will present two curated 2-hour programs of home movies (& MORE), broadcast on Chicago public access channel CAN-TV as well as streaming on Facebook and Vimeo. The first program will be presented on October 24 from 7:00-9:00 PM. The second program will be presented October 31 from 7:00-9:00 PM and will be Halloween-themed!

More information coming soon.
