Found Footage Festival

For more than 15 years, Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher, the duo behind the Found Footage Festival, have scouted garage sales, warehouses, thrift stores and dumpsters in search of possible footage for their DVD mashups. Their SXSW-award-winning collections (as seen on The Late Show with David Letterman) include Devo-inspired, homemade music videos; reruns of the Chuck Norris-starring cartoon Karate Kommandos; workplace instructional clips; dating agency videos from the ‘70s or ‘80s (we forgot which decade it was, exactly, that the porn star mustache went out of style) and more. Pickett and Prueher stop in town today to present recent finds. 10 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks Mall. For information, call 281-920-9211 or visit www.drafthouse.com/westoaks. $10.
