This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Homegrown Music Festival and 10 years of the Homegrown Music Video Festival. Participants in the video fest are assigned a random song by a local band and usually have a few weeks to put together a video. Over the past ten years, there have been videos with found footage, lip-synced performances, dolls, puppets, pets, animation, just about anything goes.
This year’s videos will be screened at Zinema 2 on Monday, April 30, at 6 p.m., and at encore presentations on May 1, also at Zinema 2, and May 6 at the Red Herring Lounge.
If you’re interested in participating and seeing your work on the big screen, registration is open until noon on Monday, April 16, at duluthhomegrown.org/register. Finished videos are due on April 27. Complete details are available when you register.
We’ve assembled a sampling of some of the approaches through the years, and each year, Perfect Duluth Day has archived as many of the finished videos as we can find to embed on the site. A mostly complete index by year is at the bottom of this post.
