Found Footage Festival

Found-Footage

Found Footage Festival
All-New Show

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 North America. Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped 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.

The Benson Movie Interruption: “The Rock” 20th Anniversary

Benson-The-Rock

The Benson Movie Interruption:
“The Rock”
20th Anniversary
With Doug Benson and friends

“The Rock is a tourist attraction?” It’s been twenty years since FBI chemical weapons specialist Dr. Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage, at his Nicolas Cage-iest) teamed up with prisoner and British Nationalist John Mason (Sean Connery, hair all akimbo) to try and stop Brigadier General Frank Hummel (Ed Harris, hair not-so-akimbo) and his mercs from destroying San Francisco from atop our very own Alcatraz Island. Michael Bay’s sophomore film “The Rock” will receive a royal ribbing from master riffer Doug Benson and friends from safe inside the confines of the historic Castro Theatre for one afternoon only.

An Evening with Noel Fielding

Goldenvoice, SF Sketchfest and WestBeth Entertainment present
An Evening with Noel Fielding

An Evening With Noel Fielding is a surreal mix of stand-up, live animation, music and some of Fielding’s best known TV characters including The Moon and Fantasy Man. Fielding has toured the show to critical acclaim throughout the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.

A comedian, actor, artist and musician, Fielding’s surrealist comedy and Rock & Roll style is utterly unique: Monty Python meets David Bowie. His shows are complete art pieces blending all of his influences – stand-up, characters, art and music – in fully-realized productions of his imagination.

Fielding rose to worldwide stardom as one half of The Mighty Boosh, a multi-award winning comedy duo whose three season run on BBC TV was revered by critics and fans alike, leading to worldwide tours and arena tours in the U.K. NME called the Boosh, “the funniest comedy double act in Britain.”

Last year Fielding was a surprise guest performing on stage with Monty Python at one of their O2 Arena shows. For the past four years, Fielding has been a team captain on the legendary BBC TV show, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, and he starred in his own TV series, Luxury Comedy, which ran for two seasons in 2012 and 2014. Half live action, half animated, the series was described by The Independent as “inescapably whimsical,” and by The Guardian as “a neo-psychedelic riot of mirth.”
