Event Description

Do you have home video that you haven't been able to watch in years because you no longer have a way to play the tapes? Never fear. Docs In Progress will be partnering with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Moving Image Archive (MARMIA) the weekend of December 1-2 for a Home Movie Weekend where talented archivists will be on hand to convert up to two hours of tape to digital formats at no charge.

Just in time for the holidays, this is a great way to preserve precious family memories and local or personal history.

Formats available to be converted:  VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, Video 8, Hi-8, Digital 8, Mini-DV
(Please note we will not be able to convert film or Betacam tapes at this event)

Please read policies on signing up for this event below.

This program is made possible through the support of 
Maryland Humanities
and is presented in partnership with

 

SIGN UP POLICY
There is no fee to register for this. However, we anticipate there will be a lot of interest. Each household may only sign up for one two-hour slot and will only be able to convert up to two hours of footage. If we see that you have signed up for more than one slot, we will cancel your registration for both slots.

WAITLIST
If the slot you want is already full, you may sign up for another slot (if available) or sign up for the waitlist. Be aware though that we anticipate that any cancellations will come very close to the date of the event. We will inform folks on the waitlist in the order you signed up for it.

CANCELLATION POLICY
We anticipate there will be a waitlist for this program. Therefore, if you can not make the time you have signed up for, please show some kindness for others who may be on the waitlist and inform us at least a few days in advance. While this one-time weekend event is free for you, it is not for us, so we want to make sure it can benefit as many people as possible.

WEATHER POLICY
In the event of inclement weather, we will make a decision by 3 pm on whether to cancel that evening’s programs. (For weekend programs, we will make the decision by 6 pm on Friday). If you have not received a notification from us, call our office at 301-789-2797 (we will have an outgoing message on voicemail).
