About The Movie Orgy (1968)


THE MOVIE ORGY is a legendary five-hour triumph from Joe Dante—one of genre cinema's most significant masterminds. In 1968, the future director of GREMLINS and INNERSPACE took an apartment’s worth of 16mm prints and, with the help of producer Jon Davison (ROBOCOP), meticulously fashioned them into what is quite possibly the world's first found footage megamix. Comprised of commercials, news reels, clips from feature films, TV bloopers, and much more, THE MOVIE ORGY is both a fascinating cultural artifact and a wild vortex of mashed-up magnificence. Unavailable to screen for decades and never available on home video, the film has been preserved from the original 16mm reels by AGFA in partnership with Joe Dante and Jon Davison.

About 15 Years of AGFA


Formed in 2009, the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) is an Austin, TX-based non-profit committed to preserving both the legacy of genre film and the theatrical experience itself. Through collection, conservation and distribution, AGFA has rescued over 100 feature films from the void. Housing theatrical and video distribution arms, a 4K film scanner and over six thousand 35mm prints, AGFA will never rest until genre movies rule the world.

Join us for an expansive series of screenings based upon some of AGFA’s favorite in-house projects, including the works of exploitation film pioneer Doris Wishman, underground trash-art king Jon Moritsugu, Riot Grrrl icon Sarah Jacobson, found-footage founder Joe Dante and the world restoration premiere of Dave Markey’s ‘80s L.A. punk rock opus Desperate Teenage Lovedolls.
