SHARE YOUR FILMS
Rifle through your attics, dig through your closets, call Grandma, and discover your family's home movies (8mm, Super8mm, 16mm, Video8, or VHS). Drop off film that you would like to share for Home Movie Day Raleigh and A/V Geeks will digitize up to 10 minutes of footage/video.
As a BONUS, you’ll later get a free digital transfer (downloadable file e-mailed to you) of the home movie that you shared with us on the screen.
Choose up to 10 minutes of your home movies on film (that's roughly 3 (three), 50ft reels of 8mm film) or video tape and bring to:
