FFF in Schenectady , 16 décembre 2016 19:30 - 21:00
The Found Footage Festival, the acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, will bring its new 2016 show to Schenectady in December. Hosts Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett, whose credits include The Onion and the Late Show with David Letterman, are excited to debut their new show in this one-night-only appearance on Friday, December 16th at 7:30 pm at Proctors (432 State Street). Tickets to the Found Footage Festival are $12 ($8 for students) and are available at http://www.foundfootagefest.com and proctors.org.
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 and Nick Prueher 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.
Highlights of the new show include:
-A collection of satanic panic videos from the 80s, including “The Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults”
-Outtakes and on-air bloopers from over ten years of North Dakota local news
-A little-seen “Welcome Home Desert Storm” parade featuring Roseanne Barr and Gerardo
-Exclusive selections from David Letterman’s VHS Collection, donated to the Found Footage Festival when Letterman retired last year
