“I remember my late grandfather always recording important family moments with a camera or a camcorder. The footage brings back heartfelt moments of family gatherings and also gives a personal view of history. I am sure many families have home videos on tapes or film reels and sadly, some of them may be falling apart with time. Thankfully, there is a way to keep them!
Toronto Public Library is pleased to partner with Regent Park Film Festival on project Home Made Visible.

With families’ permission, a copy of the small segment of the home videos will be kept at York University Libraries.”
