THE FOUND FOOTAGE FESTIVAL - FRIDAY + SATURDAY JANUARY 18-19
The FOUND FOOTAGE FESTIVAL, the acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, will make a special appearance in Athens as part of its 2013 North American tour. Hosts Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher, whose credits include The Onion and the Late Show with David Letterman, are excited to present their new lineup of video clips and live comedy at Ciné.
This one-of-a-kind event compiles more than an hour’s worth of footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout the country. 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.
SHOWTIMES: 8:00p - FRI / SAT 1/18-19 | ADMISSION: $10 - PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE HERE
