The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, returns to Soho Theatre following it’s sell out shows in 2012.
Founded in New York City in 2004, the FFF is a one-of-a-kind event featuring VHS tapes discovered at thrift shops and garage sales throughout North America. Hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) 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.
Running time: Approx 60 minutes
For ages 16+
‘A unique film festival designed to appeal to those who enjoy the voyeuristic embarrassment of catching a neighbor playing air guitar or relish the contrived storylines of corporate training videos.’
‘Carrying the torch for all the odd video gems out there.’
John C. Reilly
