Buffalo, NY – When DVDs came on the scene, countless reams of VHS tapes went into the trash. Or were donated to thrift stores. But, beware, if you've tossed anything embarrassing, it could come back to haunt you. Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett co-founded a festival using cast-off videos. The six year-old Found Footage Festival has built somewhat of a cult following in cities all over the world.

Prueher and his odd lot of home videos, strange commercials and instructional tapes is coming to Buffalo. The hosted show is at 8:00 P.M. Saturday night at Squeaky Wheel.
