The Found Footage Festival's Los Angeles edition is this Saturday! And in honor of the event, we've picked our favorite 20 covers from its extensive VHS tape archives.
The Found Footage Festival can be understood two ways. For you academic-minded folks out there, please enjoy this postmodern bricolage of sourced vernacular media, performing cultural archeology utilizing obsolete technology, with a hint of schadenfreude and nostalgia. For the rest of us, just deal with the random realness and hilarity that ensues as Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher troll yard sales, flea markets, Goodwill and dusty basements in search of the weirdest professional, amateur, artsy and commercial VHS tapes ever, so you don’t have to.
The Lodge Room, 104 North Ave., Highland Park; Sat., Jan 19, 7 p.m.; $16. Found Footage Festival Los Angeles
