On Saturday, November 4, 2017, the Mills College Art Museum (MCAM) will host Home Movie Day: Korean Americans in the Bay Area in conjunction with their current exhibit, In Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area. Home Movie Day celebrates amateur filmmaking and provides the opportunity for individuals and families to author and share their memories with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn. You can bring your family’s 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, VHS and DVDs to the theater on Saturday. The staff will provide equipment and volunteers to project your footage. The event is free and open to the public. The movie drop off will be from 11:00 AM- 1:00 PM, and the screening will be from 1:00-3:00 PM. Refreshments will be served.

CAAM’s own Asian American home movies initiative, Memories to Light, is always seeking Asian American home movies. Find out more about Memories to Light here.
