The San Francisco Media Archive and Oddball Films present Home Movie Day in conjunction with the 11th Annual Worldwide Home Movie Day. Members of the public are invited to submit their home movies. Bring your films: 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and even Beta and VHS home movies to SFMA where they will be inspected by HMD projectionists. Following the clinic, we'll be having a free screening of Vintage San Francisco Home Movies. These homegrown rarities include The Innocent Fair (1915, Excerpt); a Halloween treasure The Witches' Sabbath (1961); Farewell to the Fox Theatre (1963); Ken Kesey's Further Bus Visits the Panhandle (1966); Frank Savage's San Francisco Summer of Love (1967); the SFSU Student Strike (1968); Black Sabbath Float at Folsom Street Parade (1970); Warren Weinstock's Shades of San Francisco; and Georgina Corzine's Sing Along San Francisco (2002). So bring your own family treasures for a celebration of amateur filmmaking and home movie preservation.
"There's no such thing as a bad home movie. These mini-underground opuses are revealing, scary, joyous, always flawed, filled with accidental art and shout out from attics and closets all over the world to be seen again. Home Movie Day is an orgy of self-discovery, a chance for family memories to suddenly become show business. If you've got one, whip it out and show it now."
