Lost & Found Film Club presents a carefully curated VG+ hodgepodge of scattershot celluloid, packed as densely as library stacks and screening in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format — plus, grilled cheese sandwiches will be provided! What began as an after-hours Cinefamily staff tradition is now our showcase of ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films of the 20th century, all of which were perhaps never intended to be seen on the big screen, until now. On any given Lost And Found night, the program might contain “fuzzy felt” children’s films, social engineering and training films, advertisements, mental hygiene madness, animation, documentaries, student experiments, home movies on rusted reels — pretty much anything that isn’t a commercial feature film, accompanied by the velvety crunch of grilled cheese sandwiches. Come see what slipped through the splices. Did we forget to mention that GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES WILL BE AVAILABLE?!
For October’s program, we bring you a special “SHOCKTOBER” edition of Lost & Found, featuring terrifyingly rare 16mm films that shock and surprise to make their points. We’ll screen the most hilarious Halloween Safety film of all time, plus bloody workplace safety shorts, Angel Death in which Paul Newman speaks out about the horrors of PCP, the dental nightmare that is The Haunted Mouth and much more!
