Found Footage Festival: After Dark at Arnolfini

About

The Found Footage Festival, America's acclaimed touring showcase of odd and hilarious found videos, will bring its new 2018 show to Arnolfini, presented by Encounters Short Film Festival and Perfect Strangers Comedy.

The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing videos found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout North America. Comedians Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) 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. 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.

Highlights of the new show include:
• A home movie documenting a debaucherous holiday weekend in rural Michigan
• A New Age exercise video demonstrating a process called "testicle breathing"
• The "sexy" hype video for a 1980s pro wrestling duo called The Fabulous Ones
• Behind-the-scenes footage from a fishing-themed calendar called Women In Waders

The Found Footage Festival debuted its first show in New York City in 2004 and has gone on to sell out hundreds of shows each year across the U.S. and Canada, including Just For Laughs Festival and Bonnaroo. The fest has been featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and NPR, and has been named a critics' pick in dozens of publications, including The New York Times. The FFF can also be seen on the truTV series, "Late Night Snack," in the hit documentary "Winnebago Man," and in their book, "VHS: Absurd, Odd and Ridiculous Relics from the Videotape Era."

Tickets are £12 plus booking fee
