LOST FILM FEST is a laugh-a-riot performance hosted by Scott Beibin (Bloodlink Records, Evil Twin Booking.) With equal emphasis on both “laugh” and “riot”, Lost Film Fest focuses on pranks vs. corporations and government institutions. If George W. Bush makes you puke, and you dig pie fights with cops, riot footage, and culture jamming, you’ll love the punk rock urgency of the Lost Film Fest and its celebration of media archaeology and illegal art.

Lost Film Fest from West Philadelphia is a traveling multimedia spectacle incorporating live performance and video. It’s a truly independent, anti-authoritarian, anti-corporate grassroots DIY media extravaganza hosted by Scott Beibin. Beibin travels the globe with the fest telling stories and spinning movies using a video projector, dvd player, and backpack filled with goodies. The roadshow incorporates a sexy, smash-it-up, radical anti-capitalist anti-globalization perspective. Truly “Too Hot for TV” since 1999, the LFF has featured scathing and hilarious social commentary in the form of narrative shorts, documented pranks, hot amateur protest footage, and video re-mixes. Additionally there is an annual weeklong event held in Philly, and guerilla visits to Sundance, Cannes, and the Skull and Bones Society. This jam is about smashing the illusions cast by Hollywood, the Pentagon, and FOX News. Yeah!

Cost: $5-10
