Found Footage Festival at Ciné - this Friday & Saturday!


We love the Found Footage Festival! 

You don't want to miss this seriously fun night - coming this weekend (January 18th & 19th) to Ciné!!

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.

Among the new clips featured in the 2013 program:

- A video featuring a woman whose enthusiasm for craft sponging borders on psychotic
- A new collection of exercise tapes, including one called “The Sexy Treadmill Workout,” found in Georgia
- 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 1986 video about how to care for your ferret
