“There’s no such thing as a bad home movie...an orgy of self-discovery, a chance for family memories to suddenly become show business. If you’ve got one, whip it out and show it now.” — John Waters

Baltimore: come see yourself on the big screen! Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held annually worldwide. You can see and share your own home movies with the Baltimore community, and see your neighbors’ in turn. It’s a chance to discover why to care about these films and to learn how best to care for them.
