Lost and Found

Found Footage Festival helps you find your way
Monica Riese, 10:15am, Wed. May. 8, 2013

These days, YouTube has it all, doesn't it?

Dating advice. Singing prodigies. Movie trailers.

But recent stats claim YouTube users are watching some 6 billion hours of videos a month. Is it all becoming too much to absorb? And what about all the stuff that (gasp) hasn't made it online yet? Found Footage Festival to the rescue.

Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett are back with their "touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos," bringing home video gold to the big screen. They've got your yo-yo pranks, your obsessive craft sponging, your ferret care … Truly, this is the mother lode.

Tickets ($12) are still available. Check out the trailer below to see some of what you're in for.

(NSFW: cartoon penis, sexy treadmill workout, etc.)


The Found Footage Festival screens tonight, 7pm, at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz (320 E. Sixth). See www.foundfootagefest.com for more information, or buy tickets from the Drafthouse website.
