After selling out Memphis shows in 2010 and 2011, we're bringing the Found Footage Festival back to the Studio on the Square on Monday, April 15 at 7:30 pm for an all-new showcase of videos found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout the country.
Tickets: $12 general admission and in advance / $9 for Indie Memphis members at the door. ** Admission restricted to those 18 and older. **
Curators Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) will be on hand to host the screening 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.
Since its first tour in 2004, the Found Footage Festival has gone on to sell out hundreds of shows across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., including the HBO Comedy Festival at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. The festival has been featured on National Public Radio, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and G4 TV’s Attack Of The Show, and has been named a critic’s pick in dozens of publications, including The Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle (“Riotous!”), AVClub.com (“Skull-crushingly funny.”), The Stranger, and The Chicago Tribune.
