More Info Official Website

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 Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped 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.

Among the new clips featured in the 2014 program:
-A new exercise video montage featuring a Christmas-themed workout, a martial arts fitness regimen called "Tiger Moves," and a tape called "Butt Camp"
-Newly unearthed footage of the world's most obnoxious home shopping hosts, John & Johnny (c. 1987), and the long-awaited reunion orchestrated by the FFF curators 26 years later
-Exclusive footage of the Chef Keith news prank the curators pulled on news stations in the Midwest over the holidays.
-A bizarre instructional video from 1997 with the redundant title, "How to Have Cybersex on the Internet"

“Skull-crushingly funny.” –A.V. Club

"Carrying the torch for all the odd video gems out there." –John C. Reilly

“The arbiters of awesome odd ephemera.” -Mashable

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

It’s telling that Pixar guru John Lasseter counts Japanese Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki as his key influence.  If animation in the United States ever has a chance to be something more than instantly devalued as a “children’s” medium, it’s in their hands.

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
