Lost & Found Film Club

View Past Events



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 presents a carefully curated mix of ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format — plus, grilled cheese sandwiches will be available! Any given program may contain 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. Did we forget to mention that GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES WILL BE AVAILABLE?!

This month we’re flashing the signal for all gearheads and grease monkeys to put the pedal to the metal and get your pistons pounding over to Lost & Found or a night of “auto-rotica” that’ll give you a new lease on laughter. 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.
