About Home Made Visible and Regent Park Film Festival

The Canadian archives are lacking in home movie footage from Indigenous people and Visible Minorities. As old film and videotapes threaten to fall apart with time, Home Made Visible works to preserve this history, celebrate the joy captured in home movies, and explore how archives have the power to shape who we become and how we relate to one another. HMV is currently on tour across Canada - find participating library branches near you HERE.

Regent Park Film Festival is Toronto’s only free community film festival. In addition to the Annual Film Festival and Under the Stars: Movies in the Park, we host year-round film screenings, school programs, and workshops at no cost. We are dedicated to showcasing local and international independent works relevant to people from all walks of life, with a focus on inviting those of us from low-income and public housing communities. The films we present break stereotypes and show that no one place or person has just one story.
