The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, will make its triumphant return to the UK.
Founded in New York City in 2004, the FFF is a one-of-a-kind event featuring VHS tapes picked up at thrift shops and garage sales throughout North America. Hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) host the 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 left on the street, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
Highlights from the 2013 show include:
-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 news stations in the Midwest last year
-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
-Highlights from a 1996 video about how to care for your ferret
Part of the programme for The Art of Pop Video exhibition
