The Found Footage Festival, the popular touring showcase of odd and hilarious clips from found videotapes, is coming to Oakland on Sunday, September 18th at 6 p.m. at the Parkway Theater. Having played to sold out crowds in New York, Austin, Minneapolis, Boston and Chicago earlier this year, the Found Footage Festival curators are looking forward to bringing their unique blend of video clips and comedy to the Bay Area in this special limited engagement.
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.
Additional information and a short preview of the show can be found on the festival's website: www.foundfootagefestival.com.
