Make the links between that Super8 app on your phone with the Super8 film that might be in your attic or in a box under the bed, when The Box brings Home Movie Day to Plymouth for the first time ever!
Experts from The Box will be on hand to evaluate any films and videos you bring in. Get tips on how to identify your film gauge or video format, how to digitise your collections easily and how to care for film and video. If you have home movies on film or video that you’ve never seen or haven’t watched since you inherited them from your grandparents, don’t let them decay! Bring them to The Box to share with others.
This event is part of a collaboration between The Box and University of Plymouth that’s exploring the importance of home movies and amateur films how they can contain possibilities for how we might live now and in the future. The collaboration is a response to the upcoming 80th anniversary of Jill Craigie’s film The Way We Live. While not a home movie, Craigie’s film involved a huge cast of non-professional actors and gave audiences an insight into the ordinary lives of Plymothians after the Second World War.
Admission free. No need to book.
