IPSWICH will join more than 78 cities around the world when it celebrates World Home Movie Day.
Locals are invited to come along this Saturday at Ipswich Central Library, 10am-12pm, to join in the festivities.
Tourism and Libraries Committee Chairperson Councillor David Pahlke said Ipswich was proud to be only the second city in Australia to mark the day.
"While the search continues and Picture Ipswich is still calling for movies to add to their website, we are hosting a special viewing on the day," Cr Pahlke said.
"Presently on Picture Ipswich you can watch the stacks at Swanbank as they were demolished in 2006 or follow the SES workers as they cross the flooded Bremer River at One Mile in 2011. The addition of film capturing life in Ipswich over the decades helps to broaden the appeal of the database connecting today's residents with the past."
Cr Pahlke said Picture Ipswich continued to play an important role in the community.
"We welcome any footage people like to share," he said.
"Each movie and image placed on Picture Ipswich will help us to leave behind a more detailed picture of the Ipswich of yesterday and today.
"Movies focusing on significant civic and community events, celebrations, openings and sporting contests would contribute a new and appealing dimension to the historical record."
