Inaugural Home Movie Day looks into the past

Submitted to Prospector

The Nevada City Film Festival presented the inaugural Home Movie Day in Nevada City at the Nevada Theatre on November 13.

A group of professional film archivists led by Pamela Vadakan, director for California Revealed, a State Library initiative, worked with local film enthusiasts and volunteers to learn how to preserve old film footage as well as operate and care for various projectors.

Afterwards attendees were treated to a program that included old films of the 1961 Nevada City bicycle races, the Brunswick Basin in the 1950s, travel films of national parks and Europe from the 1940s, Los Angeles after WWII, and more.
