To mark Home Movie Day 2019, the NFSA is participating in an event organised by the Centre for Home Movies. Commencing at 12:00pm (Universal Coordinated Time) on Sunday 27 October 2019 – also the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage – the ‘Home Movie Day and Night: 24-Hour Marathon‘ showcases home movies from around the world.
It will be webcast online for 24 hours (on YouTube) with one hour from each time zone allowing viewers to experience the similarities and differences of home movies worldwide.
The NFSA has contributed an hour of content across the three time zones which Australia straddles to reflect the theme of the event: ‘People and Places: Home Movies of Where We Live’.
Below you can watch a clip from each of the three time zones.
