Critic’s Pick: Nostalgia 3/15/11

Found Footage Festival . . . . . . . .

By Jason Webber

Vinyl may have made an unexpected but welcome resurgence but it remains doubtful that VHS will one day enjoy a similar reappraisal. Walk into any Salvation Army or Goodwill and you see lonely, forlorn, ignored VHS tapes, all probably destined for a landfill at some point. But with the Found Footage Festival, filmmakers/writers/smartasses Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett give those scratchy old cartridges one more chance for glory. The Found Footage Festival showcases clips from videotapes rescued from garage sales, dumpsters, warehouses, thrift stores, etc., that have been edited into a hilarious and fascinating montage of nostalgia. Heck, you may even recognize — or have owned — some of the source material way back in the day … or am I really the only one in America who had “Fart: The Movie” on VHS circa 1992? The Found Footage Festival will be held on Sunday, March 20 at 7:30 at the Neon. Tickets are $11 and ONLY available online at www.foundfootagefestival.com.
