Ever since stumbling across a McDonald's training video (Inside and Outside Custodial Duties) in 1991, Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have managed to amass a large collection of offbeat or downright dumb videos. But these guys aren't pack rats; rather, they're the brains behind the Found Footage Festival, which since 2004 has been circling the country to allow other folks to enjoy these VHS oddities, too. The pair have brought their event to Charlotte before, and now they return with an array of new material, including a 1996 video about ferret care, a 1986 fitness video titled Bunnetics: The Buttocks Workout and a 1983 video of Mitt Romney hosing down his crated dog Seamus on top of the family station wagon (OK, just kidding on that last one). Held at UNC Charlotte’s McKnight Hall, 9201 University City Blvd. For more information, visit www.foundfootagefest.com or www.thelightfactory.org.
