Found Footage Festival: Volume 8

On 25th March - 9.00 PM
Other showings
From 25th March - 25th March
Joe Pickett, Nick Prueher

Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) return to Leeds with an all-new edition of their hilariously mad-cap live show, featuring newly unearthed VHS gems found at thrift stores across the US.

Hosts and curators Nick and Joe began collecting found videotapes in 1991 after stumbling across a training video entitled, ‘Inside and Outside Custodial Duties’ at a McDonald’s in their home state of Wisconsin. Since then, they have compiled an impressive collection of strange, outrageous and profoundly stupid videos.

This year’s highlights include a collection of satanic panic videos from the 80s including 'The Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults', outtakes and on-air bloopers from North Dakota local news and a star-studded Desert Storm parade sponsored by Taco Bell. There will also be highlights from David Letterman's Video Collection, inherited by the Found Footage Festival when he retired – so join us for a good old giggle at the weird and wonderful world of found footage.
