The Found Footage Festival

Sunday 8th March

Rating: 15

USA 2020, 90mins

The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind celebration of the videos that time forgot, dredged up in dusty thrift stores and estate sales throughout North America. Childhood friends Pickett and 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.

Highlights of the new show include:

● Recently unearthed footage from the 1987 Miss Junior America Wisconsin pageant

● An exercise video called “Skiercise!”

● A local news story about Pudgie Wudgie the Wonder Cat

● A 1982 beauty pageant for men from the southwest of England

● Cringe-worthy courtroom footage of Pickett and Prueher in their legal depositions following a federal lawsuit over their news pranks as strongman duo, Chop & Steele
