Home Movie Day at EMP

In conjunction with mIrrorspeak, we’re hosting Baltimore Home Movie Day this year! Curated by Dwight Swanson and Timothy Wisniewski, we’ll be celebrating the art of the home movie this Saturday at 8PM.

Home Movie Day is a night of film and stories from local residents and filmmakers examining who we are and how we got here.
