Lost & Found Film Club: Computer Love Edition

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 August’s program, we bring you a special “COMPUTER LOVE” edition of Lost & Found, featuring two remarkable 8-bit portraits of the early days of computer technology: Don’t Bother Me I’m Learning and Computers: Challenging Man’s Supremacy. Plus rare Muppet Meeting Films made for industrial use by Jim Henson & Frank Oz, experimental animation from CalArts & more.
