THE POLISH ARCHIVE OF HOME FILMS is a long-term project carried out by Filmoteka of the Museum of Modern Art (MSN) in Warsaw and the Friends of the Museum. The project is focused on collecting, digitizing and making available private home films about everyday life created in post-war Poland. The films were mainly made on 8- and 16-mm tapes. Its mission is to save existing, often forgotten tapes. The films are a unique record not only of family histories – weddings, First Communions, funerals or holiday trips – but also of post-war Poland, captured by the eye of amateur filmmakers. We treat the materials donated to the Polish Archive of Home Films not only as a record of intimate micro-memory but also as a collection of memories of a bygone era recorded on silent film tapes. The archive will expand over the next few years and descriptions will be added to films. It will be also transferred to the new building of the Museum of Modern Art on plac Defilad. The initiator of the project is an artist and a film director, Maciej Drygas.
