The screenings will be followed by a panel discussion with 21c Lexington Museum Manager Alex Brooks, Katrina Dixon and Sarah Dorpinghaus. Film preservation and archive professionals will be at the event to provide instruction on how to best care for your home movies.
Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held annually at many local venues worldwide. Home Movie Day events provide the opportunity for individuals and families to see and share their own home movies with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn. It’s a chance to discover why to care about these films and to learn how best to care for them.
About the Lexington Film League Showcase
The Lexington Film League Showcase at 21c Museum Hotel Lexington will present monthly programs that reflect the richness and diversity of contemporary film and video practice in the region and the world. The programs will include new works made by young artists, important works made by living artists, and historical works made by marginalized artists. The programs will include works made in different media, including single-channel films and videos, as well as performances. The programs will also include works that reference different genres, including abstract, non-narrative, documentary, and fictional works. The primary focus of the Showcase will be to introduce Lexington audiences to important film and video works that are not currently available in the area. The ultimate goal of the Showcase is to promote Lexington and 21c as a venue for artistic film and video work.
