Make Your Home Movie Donations

Do you have 8mm or 16mm film you shot of Jimi Hendrix at Public Hall in 1968? Woodstock? Peter Laughner in the 1970s? The Waitresses in the ‘80s? We want you to bring in your home movies to be digitized and potentially added to the Rock Hall's permanent collection as a part of NEO Sound, our local popular music preservation initiative ( Self-recorded films and videos of Northeast Ohio acts, national acts featured at local venues, or those important or historical music events filmed by NEO community members are of particular interest.    

All participants will receive: 

  • A special deep discount offer on admission tickets to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 
  • A  complimentary USB drive with digital, preservation-quality files of your film or video 
  • A copy of the Library & Archives' zine “Preservation: 88 Lines About 44 Techniques” 

Participants will also have the opportunity to attend Home Movie Day at the Rock Hall's Foster Theatre on Saturday, October 20, 2018, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., to see clips from their original film or video featured in a compilation film and will receive a limited edition poster for the event.
