Home Movie Playlist

ARCMTL is now regularly adding digitized home movies found in Montreal on a Youtube playlist for ephemeral films here. If you have any old film reels, VHS or beta or other video formats that you think may have Montreal-area or Quebec home movies on them and you don’t know how to transfer them or want to donate them, you can contact us by email.

Information about upcoming Home Movie Day Montreal events will be posted here later in 2023.


Stay tuned for news about the fall 2023 edition of Basement Tapes Day – Journée des Trouvailles Sonores.

ARCMTL and the Musée des ondes Emile Berliner joined forces in November 2020 for the first-ever web-streamed Montreal edition of Basement Tapes Day, a showcase of found sounds and vintage audio formats! View the event on its Youtube playlist here, with subtitles available in English or French.


Home Movie Day Montreal is organized by Arcmtl and its partners: the Center for Home Movies, Triana Media the Cinémathèque québécoise, Les Productions de la Ruelle Vidéomédia  and the Groupe de recherche sur le cinéma éducatif, industriel et de commande canadien.
