VIDEO PIRATES presents VIDEO PARTY, a free monthly event at PhilaMOCA
Philadelphia’s premiere found footage comedy show follows up on the success of this past April’s VIDEO PIRATES: PHILADELPHIA program with a free monthly series held on the third Monday of every month at PhilaMOCA.
The first VIDEO PARTY will be held on Monday, July 15 at 7:30 PM at PhilaMOCA. It will feature: strangers’ camcorder-shot home videos that you were never meant to see, highlights from horror movie-themed workout videos, and the greatest Christian propaganda film of the 1990s (think IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE with really cheesy/sensational alternate reality sequences).
VIDEO PARTY is a showcase of film oddities, justifiably forgotten VHS gems, and rarities from the world of public access. It’s a casual, free format program that may feature anything from vintage Saturday morning cartoon preview specials to training videos from your favorite fast food corporations. Admission is free.
Come on out and regress your forward technology-fueled minds!
About Video Pirates:
PhilaMOCA Director/Cinedelphia.com site editor Eric Bresler is the one-man collective that is Video Pirates. VP lovingly curates and re-edits curios from home video’s past for the amusement of the nostalgic and completely unaware. VP debuted in 2012 with a screening at the International House and has since performed two feature-length programs at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art, the latter program was part of the Cinedelphia Film Festival. The first VP DVD was released this past April and it quickly sold out due to international interest, a new pressing of the DVD is on its way this summer.
