For the eleventh international Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 19 2013, film archivists will take time out of the film vaults to help the public enjoy and save their home movies. Home Movie Day shows how home movies on 8mm, Super8, 9.5mm and 16mm offer a unique view of past life in London and of family history. There will be a free Film Clinic, staffed by volunteer film archivists, to which members of the public may bring their films for examination. The archivists will give feedback about the condition of the films, and advice on how to store them properly in the home. Information will also be available on donating films to archives and how to transfer films to digital formats for easy home viewing.
