Aggregators of all the stupid things people have taped Everything is Terrible! along with L.A.-based film organization Cinefamily are hosting their fourth "Everything is Festival," and Amoeba is co-presenting the opening night screening of Rewind This! Aug. 12.

Amoeba will be on hand with a booth selling rare, cultish and collectible VHS tapes, for those who want to get their own "Everything is Terrible!" on at home.

In the spirit of the website of its namesake, which includes found footage from infommercials, public access TV and other odds and ends, Everything is Festival IV: The Dreamquest will feature made-for-TV movie melds, esoteric documentaries, footage from forgotten, strange video games and more. Documentary Rewind This! covers the life (and afterlife) of VHS, including early, cheaply made direct-to-video features. It starts at 10 p.m., and tickets are $12; buy them here. Before that, at 7:30 p.m. the festival will screen Final Cut: Ladies and Gentlemen, a film stringing together clips from classic films into a new narrative; tickets for that are available here.

Watch the trailer of Rewind This! below.
