The 2010 Found Footage Film Festival

Wex at Gateway

Join us at the Gateway Film Center (located in the South Campus Gateway, just three blocks to our south) where we program a different exceptional independent or international title for a run of at least two weeks each month. Wexner Center members pay member pricing for all Wex at Gateway screenings—and save on most other movies at Gateway too.

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 the country. Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher, whose credits include The Onion and the Late Show with David Letterman, host this Wex at Gateway screening in-person and provide their unique observations and commentary on these found video 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. Among the videos to be featured in the 2010 program: A collection of the worst Saturday morning cartoons ever to surface on VHS; Highlights from a 1987 video dating reel found by David Cross; A home movie taken at a 1985 heavy metal festival outside Washington, D.C.; A brand-new compilation of exercise videos featuring Dolph Lundgren, Milton Berle, and WWF’s The Bushwhackers. (approx. 90 mins., video)
