Found Footage Festival showcases thrift store videos
The Found Footage Festival, which is a collection of film clips acquired by donation or found at thrift stores around the country, is coming to Wyoming this week.
Curator Nick Prueher says many of the films are old instructional videos, like how to train your ferret, or how to learn Japanese.
“They’re all really silly, and I guess the litmus test for us is whether they’re unintentionally funny,” Prueher said. “Whatever the video was trying to do, it has to fail at in some entertaining way.”
Prueher says they’ll be combing thrift stores in Wyoming for new film clips to include in future shows.
The Found Footage Festival will be in Laramie on Friday Feb. 8th, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Gryphon Theater.
