Found Footage Festival comes home with Midwest nostalgia

Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett have been collecting, curating and cutting VHS footage “found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters across the country” since 2004. The comedians and writers cut their unintentionally funny fodder into a live show complete with sketch comedy and running commentary and call it the Found Film Festival. This weekend the festival comes to Chicago with the “Best in the Midwest” featuring footage found in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. Prueher and Pickett give us a preview!
