The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that compiles over an hour’s worth of footage from videotapes that were found at garage sales and thrift stores, and in warehouses and trash bins throughout the country. Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher host each screening in-person and provide their unique observations and commentary on these found 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 90-minute celebration of all things found. Among the new clips in the 2007 show: Highlights from a cable access talent show called “Stairway to Stardom” An all-new collection of exercise videos featuring Marky Mark Wahlberg, O.J. Simpson and a group of rapping pregnant ladies An instructional video for a cosmetic device so frightening that it will forever haunt you The Found Footage Festival has been named a “Critic’s Pick” in dozens of publications, including The Onion, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago Tribune, and on Wired.com. The curators have been featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, G4’s Attack of the Show and recently on National Public Radio. The Onion lauded, “bank on a big crowd and more than a few laughs at the expense of videotaped others.”
