FOUND FOOTAGE FESTIVAL
9 p.m., Market Street Cinema. $10.

Think “The Soup” meets “Mystery Science Theater 3000” meets FOUND magazine meets all the insane pre-digital ephemera people exhume and stick on YouTube and you're on your way to the Found Footage Festival. For almost 20 years, childhood friends Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have been digging through dumpsters and scouring thrift stores in search of VHS gold. Since 2004, Pickett, a former film technician, and Prueher, a former researcher at “The Late Show with David Letterman,” have toured with highlights of their collection, which today includes some 3,000 VHS tapes, according to Prueher. Friday's stop in Little Rock, for the first time ever, will find the hosts introducing and providing background and jokes on things like a home movie taken at a 1985 heavy metal festival outside D.C., exercise videos featuring Dolph Lundgren and Milton Berle and, if we're lucky, a custom-cut trailer for the '80s Arkansas film “Little Marines 2.” Advance tickets are available at foundfootagefest.com. Pickett and Prueher encourage folks to bring their own “finds” to the screening. Look for a Q&A with Prueher below on Rock Candy, too.
