The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing videos found at garage sales, thrift stores, warehouses, and dumpsters throughout North America. Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped obscurities. From the curiously produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
Among the new clips featured in the 2014 program:
•A new exercise video montage featuring a Christmas-themed workout, a martial arts fitness regimen called "Tiger Moves," and a tape called "Butt Camp"
•Newly unearthed footage of the world's most obnoxious home shopping hosts, John & Johnny (c. 1987), and the long-awaited reunion orchestrated by the FFF curators 26 years later
•"Special Delivery"—a 1994 video for dog breeders about a process known as "whelping"
•A bizarre instructional video from 1997 with the redundant title, "How to Have Cybersex on the Internet"
This screening is currently sold out, but don’t despair.
Additional seats regularly become available (due to no-shows and day-of ticket releases) and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis right before the film starts.
