The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, will make its triumphant return to Kansas City with a brand-new “Best of the Midwest” show. Hosts Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett, whose credits include The Onion and the Late Show with David Letterman, are excited to show off this special lineup of VHS footage found entirely in Missouri, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing videos found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout North America. Curators Pickett and 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 celebration of all things found.
