“Hysterical and brilliant!” – Time Out
The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing VHS relics salvaged from thrift stores, garage sales and garbage cans across the country. Curators/hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) 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 video 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.
