The California Chronicle quoted Ruta Abolins, administrative director of the Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection, in an article outlining the archives’ sponsoring National Home Movie Day in October.
“If you have home movies on film or videotape that you are concerned about preserving, bring them to Home Movie Day,” said Abolins. “We will be screening 16mm, regular 8mm and Super 8mm films, VHS videotapes and DVDs. Too many people see their home movies as just documenting their family; they don’t realize that home movies provide insight into family custom, lifestyle, landscape and history.”
