Join PAVED Arts this October at the Saskatoon Public Library with events to celebrate International Home Movie Day.

We’ll be presenting a documentary, offering personal film inspections and consultations as well as a wrap up event to celebrate local films on the big screen.

All events take place at the Frances Morrision Library.

Thursday, October 6 at 7pm, we’ll kick off our HMD celebrations with a special screening of Random Acts of Legacy: The revelatory and delightful memoir of a Chinese-American family in Chicago, from the Great Depression through the post-war era, is uncovered through rescued home movies which were saved by a dedicated collector in search of their creator’s descendants. This film was the recipient of an Honorable Mention for Best Canadian Feature Documentary at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

Between October 11-28 you’ll have a chance to look at your 8mm and super8mm film on PAVED Arts equipment and learn about preservation and how to have them transferred.

Everyone who attends a consultation with their films will be entered in a draw to have 400 ft of their film professionally transferred thanks to Film Rescue International.

Registration for consultations begins October 3, 2016 at 10:00 am.

Our wind up event will take place on Saturday, October 29 at 2pm, with a screening of local home movies presented on the big screen.
