Home To Harlem: Community Archiving Pop-up Event
Co-presented with XFR Collective and The Children's Art Carnival
Do you have boxes of VHS home movies lying around that you would like digitized?
Too often, home movies get trapped on hard-to-play, degrading, analog media in basements and under beds because the cost to store, preserve, and transfer media is too high!
Maysles Documentary Center and The Children’s Art Carnival are very excited to be in collaboration with the XFR Collective (pronounced “transfer collective”) for a day of food, drinks, education, zines, home movies, and media preservation!
Video transfers will take place on a first-come first-serve basis. Even if you don’t have any home movies to bring in, you are encouraged to watch and ask questions while we work. We will have drinks, snacks, music, home movies screenings, zines and educational materials, so drop in or stay awhile!
If you do choose to bring in media to be digitized, please make sure all rights and permissions to material must be attended to by the participant. Also, keep in mind that we will only be able to transfer VHS tapes and no other media formats.
