See these films: Found Footage Film Festival at the Brattle

The Oscars might showcase the film industry's proudest achievements, but the Found Footage Film Festival - which annually selects the best of old VHS tapes found in dumpsters, Goodwill racks, and padlocked attics - reveals our souls. Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher host their latest selections, including a recorded session with hypnotist Dr. Rocco on how to be a better lover and "Ventriloquism For Fun & Profit," an instructional video starring the severed head of marionette Jerry Mahoney. (He makes Chucky look like Shari Lewis's Lamb Chop). An added treat: the legendary short "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," an in-depth look at the coolest place to be during a 1986 Judas Priest concert. It's all at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | 7:30 pm | $10 | 617.876.6837 or
