That’s right, we are officially store owners. Go ahead and call us shopkeeps if you like. We’ve launched a new online store with tons of awesome FFF stuff: DVDs, T-shirts, and more to come.
 
Best of all, you don’t have to have a PayPal account get these goodies delivered to your door any more. I’m not sure how it works exactly, but we can now accept credit cards directly. It’s like we’ve got an electronic version of those bulky swipey machines.
 
Anyway, as part of the new store, we’re offering some pretty great deals. For a limited time, you can pre-order our Volume 4 DVD (available Nov. 3rd) and receive free shipping. And there are also package deals to order all four DVDs or even our feature-length documentary, Dirty Country.
 
Our fantastic graphic designer, Erik Evensen has whipped up a batch of new t-shirts for Vol. 4, including a shirt featuring the one-and-only Bargain Bernie. Store.foundfootagefest.com is now open for your browsing pleasure. Take a look.

We are currently in the midst of our biggest tour to date, one that will take us to almost 40 cities across the U.S. and Canada through December. Then we’ll pick things back up in mid-January and hit dozens more through May of 2010. It’s a busy schedule, but we can’t wait to show everyone our newest finds.
 
On the right-hand side of the website, you can check out all of our upcoming tour dates and order tickets online. We’re adding new dates all the time, so check back often to see when we’re coming to your city. Or better yet, sign up for our FFF newsletter and we’ll “zap off” and email and let you know.
 
We’re excited to bring the new show to some of our favorite cities in Texas, the Northwest, the Northeast and the Midwest this fall, plus we’ll be playing some new cities like Vancouver, Asbury Park, NJ, Detroit, and Providence, RI this time around. And three cheers to our 2009/2010 tour sponsors The Onion and AV Club for their support.
 
We’re always looking for new venues to add to the tour. If you’d like us to bring our little dog-and-pony show to your town, send us an email at booking@foundfootagefest.com. So far, we’ve met a lot of awesome people and heard about some awesome videos. Hope to see you in your neck-of-the-woods soon.

In honor of the fifth anniversary of the Found Footage Festival, we’ve launched a brand-new website. Take a look around, kick the tires, browse to your heart’s content—we think you’ll like what you find.
 
The first thing you’ll notice is the video player, featuring a new found video every day. Check back often to see the latest VHS nuggets we’ve turned up in thrift stores and garage sales during our travels. We know what you’re thinking, “Finally, a website with funny videos!” That’s right, call us pioneers if you will, but every video on foundfootagefest.com will bear the FFF stamp of quality. We’ve sifted through the garbage to bring you only the best in unintentionally funny videos. Children’s tapes, religious videos, public access TV, instructional and training videos, exercise tapes—they’re all here, awaiting your comments. Make no mistake, we’re still stubbornly old school when it comes to our video procurement. We never take any videos from the internet. Like the videos in our live show and DVDs, all the videos on foundfootagefest.com come from actual VHS tapes we’ve dug up in out-of-the-way places all across the country. Wherever possible, we’ve included information about the original tapes and where we found them.
 
Foundfootagefest.com is also the place to find our up-to-the-minute tour date information, with links to buy tickets in advance so you can check us out in your city. And if up-to-the-minute is too slow for you, you can constantly hit refresh to get our latest Twitter updates from the road. Did we mention there’s also a new blog with news about the FFF and stories from our video-finding adventures? It’s true.
 
Lastly, be sure to check out our new FFF store, where you can pre-order our forthcoming Vol. 4 DVD and get deals on Vols. 1-3. Plus, we’ve got a bunch of new t-shirts and other fun stuff on the way. In short, foundfootagefest.com is your destination for all things Found Footage Festival. It should be the first site you check every morning and the last site you check at night. It could be the next Google (fingers crossed). Enjoy it while it’s still got that new website smell!
 
Your Pals,
Joe & Nick
