The Academy presents the 17th annual Home Movie Day, a celebration of amateur and regional film hosted by the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar. Co-presented by L.A. as Subject and the USC Libraries, the Bazaar encourages everyone to submit their home movies—8mm film reels stashed in closets and garages—and offers complimentary inspections from local archivists and advice on how to care for these genuine cultural artifacts. The event is a project of the Center for Home Movies, a non-profit dedicated to amateur film preservation and outreach. The open screening will include games and door prizes, as well as presentations on notable amateur films. Whether or not you’ve got film cans to share, all are welcome to participate.
USC University Park Campus, Doheny Memorial Library/Intellectual Commons, Room 233, 3550 Trousdale Pkwy, Saturday, Oct. 12, noon; free. centerforhomemovies.org/losangeles.
