Home Made Visible is a nationwide archival project by the Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF) that celebrates the everyday joys lives of IBPOC communities often absent from Canada’s narrative.
Home Made Visible takes place in three parts, from 2017-2019:
1. Invites Indigenous people and visible minorities across Canada to digitize and archive home movies from the 20th century.* Do you have home movies? Learn how to digitize them here.
2. Engages Indigenous and visible minority media artists to create works that explore how archives shape the ways we engage with the colonial system and think about
collaboration and coexistence between our many communities. Meet the participating artists.
3. Tours an exhibit of the completed artworks, and selected clips of home movies across Canada, to start conversations on how our diverse histories converge on this land and reimagine the terms in which we shape our shared future. Find out where the project is headed next.
*We are especially looking for materials from outside of Toronto and/or footage from Indigenous communities.
