LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: 16 Millimeter-Mas

Lost & Found Film Club presents a carefully curated 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 available! What began as an after-hours Cinefamily staff tradition is now our showcase of ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films of the 20th century never intended to be seen on the big screen… until now. On any given Lost & Found night, the 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, 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?!

December’s “16 Millimetermas” program will contain ho-ho-holiday favorites plus some recent discoveries sure to put you in the spirit of the season, including an IBM typewriter sales film by Jim Henson (featuring Rowlf the Dog), and the 1941 anaglyphic 3D short Third Dimensional Murder. Join us as we bust out our red & blue glasses for this rarely-screened stocking stuffer!
