Home Movies

Thanks to YouTube, everyone is subjecting everyone else to their home movies and loving it, in stark contrast to how it used to be, when you had to watch the home movies of relatives you barely knew and grit your teeth the whole time. Still, if you’ve got any fond memories still trapped on celluloid (or even video), you can call the Film Reference Library (416-967-1517) before the end of the week to ask for an appointment for a free evaluation of your “treasured memories,” including consideration for inclusion in the sixth annual Home Movie Day at Cinematheque Ontario on October 18. The screening runs from noon to 5 p.m. at Jackman Hall (317 Dundas Street West) and admission is free—but we do warn that old home movies, unlike YouTube, don’t generally consist only of footage of cats hitting printers or puppies falling over.
