LOST FILM FEST hosted by vj Scott Beibin
If corporations and politicians make you want to puke, and you’d like to see them getting pied and pranked, you’ll love the LOST FILM FEST cinema laboratory hosted by vj SCOTT BEIBIN. It’s a fun mix of live performance and rare short films featuring pranks by culture jammers like THE YES MEN, sexy-smash-it-up riot footage, illegal art, media archaeology, clips censored by the mainstream media, video re-mixes, and so much more. Lost Film Fest Travels the planet year round. You never know where it will turn up next! Revolutionaries and “the kids” all agree: Lost Film Fest “is better than bad, it’s good!”. This jam is about smashing the illusions cast by Hollywood, the Pentagon, and FOX News. Yeah! Lost Film Fest: resurrecting Abbie Hoffman since 1999.
vj SCOTT BEIBIN is co-founder of the EVIL TWIN BOOKING AGENCY, HOLLYWOODCAN SUCKIT.COM, and founder of BLOODLINK RECORDS. He’s also a prolific media prankster (See the Jerry Springer episode with Beibin and Justin Pearson of The Locust).
