Lost & Found Film Club

 

 

What began as an after-hours Cinefamily staff tradition is now LA’s premier showcase of ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films of the 20th century — some perhaps never intended to be seen on the big screen… until now. Join hosts Zena Grey and Brendt Rioux for a monthly program packed as densely as library stacks and screened in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format.

LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Safetytown

Monty Python Live (mostly)
9/3/2014 - 10:30PM

Entertainment emergency! This month, we’re looking both ways, wearing protection, and handling every off-the-wall film with care as we enter SAFETYTOWN. It’s that perilous block of Movieland in which anything bad can and will happen — in the service of education. We’ve assembled a crash course in cautionary 16mm instructional shorts that will leave you prepared for any common calamity.* Beware! These films may contain: falling vats of toxic acid, reckless drivers, office atrocities, sketchy strangers, kids on LSD and electrifying claymation toasters. One in every 5 people has ephemeral film syndrome. Could it be you? Consult your box office before we stop, drop, and roll film all the way to Safetytown.

PLUS GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES!

*calamities may vary

LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Zany Miscellany 2

8/13/2014 - 10:45PM

The Cinefamily archives run deep, and this month, Lost & Found Film Club takes you deeper still with a 16mm safari of uncategorizable shorts collected from estate sales, auctions, schools, libraries and beyond. Headlining Zany Miscellany 2 is the astonishingly strange and vibed out Isaac Asimov adaptation The Ugly Little Boy, in which a futuristic team of scientists regenerate a grotesque neanderthal baby from out of time! We’ll blow the dust of an ‘80s student film made with a cast of beetles, explore early claymation experiments, visit a circus sideshow, and who knows? — maybe even learn a thing or two. Taste the cream of the 16mm crop, as we cook up grilled cheese sandwiches on the back patio and screen rare treasures “from the vaults.”

LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Naughty Bits

7/16/2014 - 10:30PM

Too hot for 16mm? Too sexy for the cinema? In our film collecting adventures, we’ve come across some gorgeous, strange, and yes, even sticky shorts that are as arousing as they are entertaining. Tonight, we’ll give you the sexual education your high school neglected, with an eyeful of awkward teens, boxing burlesque queens, animated cut-paper penises, feline fanciers and silly smut. Plus, as a special bonus, we’ll take a look at a one-of-a-kind 35mm reel of nudie scenes compiled by Hollywood projectionists of the 1960s — they saved all “the best parts” for us. Grab a hot, buttery grilled cheese on the back patio and settle in for a program sure to set your nether regions a-tingle. No hardcore, so bring a friend with delicate sensibilities and tell ‘em it’s the latest thing; if Travis Bickle had taken his date here, things would have turned out fine.

Cinefamily 4th of July POTLUCK (feat. Davie Allan & The Arrows LIVE!, plus Lost & Found Film Club)

mondoamerica2014_website
7/4/2014 - 2PM

We’ll supply the grill and some classic foodstuffs — plus IT’S A POTLUCK, so bring a dish. Impress us!

SCHEDULE
——–
2:00-5:00pm – Lost and Found Film Club
5:00pm – LIVE SET by Davie Allan & The Arrows
6:00pm (approx.) – Hell’s Angels Forever 35mm screening

We’d like to invite you all to the best 4th of July party since the Capitol Celebration of 1778, when George Washington gave the United States Army an artillery salute and a double ration of rum. It’s all planned out: an open door to our sweet back patio, friends, great music and that most American of BBQ traditions. First up, it’s a buffet of patriotic ephemeral film fun from the Lost & Found Film Club. Salute the shorts that make us proud to be Americans, with a hearty helping of absurdly entertaining 16mm oddities: the ladies of professional bowling, circus sideshow acts, hippies playing football, overeaters, teenagers with too much freedom, and even a film or two voted on by YOU, the democratized audience. Then, it’s a LIVE SET by surf/garage/proto-punk/psych guitar legends Davie Allan & The Arrows, who helped build the original sound of American garage rock. For the finale: a rare 35mm screening of the infamous motorcycle gang doc Hell’s Angels Forever. Abbondanza!

LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB - Xtian Xperiments: The Films of Rolf Forsberg

rolfforsberg_website2
6/8/2014 - 7:30PM

Meet Christian experimental cinema’s “king of kings,” Rolf Forsberg. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, major American religious organizations regularly sponsored 16mm films made for public outreach and Sunday meetings alike, hoping to engage both the spiritual and the secular. No one did it like Forsberg, who, as a student of all faiths, combined a live theater background with a passion for Fellini and Bergman to create provocatively unusual shorts. Parable (1964) reimagines the son of God as a circus clown, shocking audiences and the Protestant clergy at the World’s Fair. Stalked (1968) masterfully employs metaphor, voice-over, haunting close-ups and plenty of non-actors to depict a spiritual crisis of wax museums, desolate airports and flaming calliopes. A precursor to Silent Running, the post-apocalyptic environmentalism of Ark (1970) resonates to this day. These are not the films you’d expect to see at church; don your Sunday best for an evening of ecumenical ephemera that taps into a universal cinematic truth. Rolf Forsberg will join us in person for a career-spanning Q&A and a screening of his greatest shorts from original 16mm prints, courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive!

We’ll look beyond the twisted metal of driver’s training films (don’t worry, we’ve got some of those too) for experimental animation, talking cars for kids, neon assembly lines and carwash epiphanies. You’ll be driving under the influence of these films for days.

Program Includes:

Ballet Robotique* – General Motors (1982)
Quarter Midgets of America Children’s Racing Championships – STP (1973)
Alco Beat (1965)

But now, thanks to Lost & Found Film Club, you can smell it too. Take an odorous olfactory journey through vintage advertising on 16mm film, aided by some seriously funky scratch ‘n’ sniff cards that’ll give you a whiff of the featured products. Burnt rubber and Easy Bake cupcakes, anyone?

Plus: Choices (a hilarious ’80s film on college drinking), IBM corporate meeting films starring some of our favorite puppets (*wink*), instructions on how to use a 16mm projector, and much more!

LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Sid Laverents, Amateur Auteur

Meet The Ultimate Home Movie Maker!

2/5/2014 - 10:15PM

Lost & Found Film Club’s 1-year anniversary show!

For the first time, Lost & Found Film Club would like to honor a single filmmaker, whose playful creativity, technical innovation, D.I.Y. attitude and outsider status exemplify the Lost & Found aesthetic: San Diego’s Sid Laverents. Most famous for his homemade 1970 one-man tour de force Multiple SIDosis — which inspired countless multi-tracked music videos with its laboriously low-tech in-camera effects — Laverents spent his early career as a vaudevillian and bandleader before being bitten by the filmmaking bug in his mid 50′s. In his wake, he left a trail of zany shorts involving odd jobs, cloning and shaving cream explosions. With his living room as backdrop and his wife as co-star, Laverents blurred the lines between hobbyist and artist, creating and distributing films through old-school rental catalogs until his death at the age of 100 in 2009. We’ll screen a marathon of his best-loved 16mm shorts, as well as gorgeous 35mm restorations of Multiple SIDosis and Sid’s feature-length autobiography, The Sid Saga.

Program introduced by preservationist Ross Lipman.
Restored prints courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

This is a really weird headscratcher: Totally unclassifiable, very much born of the 70′s cult movement, not online or on DVD… and NOT to be missed!
