Found Footage Festival’s Christmas Special
Run Time: 90 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2019
Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report) emerge from their video-strewn office in Brooklyn to serve up a variety of holiday delights and disasters found on VHS, including the He-Man/She-Ra Christmas special, the best of “Jingle Cats,” an exercise video called “The Holiday Workout,” and a moving rendition of “Silent Night” by the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.
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., Canada and the UK, including the Just For Laughs Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and Bonnaroo. The fest has been featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and National Public Radio and has been named a critics’ pick in dozens of publications, including The Guardian and the New York Times. The FFF can also be seen in the hit documentary Winnebago Man and in the book “VHS: Absurd, Odd and Ridiculous Relics from the Videotape Era.”
