Got old home movies that include Manitoba history? Gimli Film Festival wants ‘em!

Gimli Film Festival recently launched the Manitoba Home Movie Archive, a special project in celebration of Gimli Film Festival’s 20th anniversary and Manitoba 150 – and part of a wider festival initiative called The Manitoba Project. And they want your old movie footage.

They’re not after moving images of you blowing out candles on your fourth birthday. But if you have footage of you and your mom and sister in front of the “world’s largest cake” over the Winnipeg City Hall fountain in 1974, they might be interested.

The festival is offering free home movie digital transfers to Manitobans with historically relevant footage of the province. Dust off those outdated eighties videotapes or forgotten 8mm film reels and Gimli Film Festival will transfer them to digital video and return them to you for your nostalgic viewing pleasure.

Interested members of the public are invited to register today for this free service and read the rules and guidelines on the festival’s website.
