Found Footage Festival
The annual touring festival showcases VHS oddities from the world’s garage sales, thrift stores warehouses and dumpsters.
VHS may be dead, but the format is gloriously resurrected by the Found Footage Festival. Hosts Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have compiled their most densely-packed lineup of hilarious found videos to date. Featured clips in the 2012 tour include a video featuring a woman whose enthusiasm for craft sponging borders on psychotic, highlights from a 1986 video about how to care for your ferret, a new collection of exercise tapes, including one called “The Sexy Treadmill Workout,” never-before-seen clips from the Kenny “K-Strass” Strasser yo-yo pranks that the FFF hosts pulled on local news stations last year, and an “opening act” of found classroom films from the ’60s and ’70s, curated especially for the show by renowned collector Skip Elsheimer of A.V. Geeks.
