We have icons of cult cinema and future favourites, plus incredible shorts and plenty of bonus content, all guaranteed to blow your mind…

SATURDAY
Freaked (Tom Stern, Alex Winter, 1993) + Alex Winter Q&A
Anatomical Gunk: Bryan M Ferguson shorts + Q&A
TBC
The Holy Mountain (Alejandro Jodorowsky, 1973)

SUNDAY
Top Knot Detective (Aaron McCann, Dominic Pearce, 2017)
Crime Wave (John Paizs, 1985)
The Crazy Family (Sogo Ishii, 1984)
The Astrologer (Craig Denney, 1975)

18+ | NB Some of the films in this programme contain material you may find upsetting or offensive. There will be content warnings on screen before films, when necessary. If you would like more information about the films and their content, message us here or at matchboxcine@gmail.com.

Weird Weekend comes from the producers of CAGE-A-RAMA & KeanuCon, the team that brought you Cowards Bend the Knee with Ela Orleans live score, Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes and Turkish Star Wars (2K Restoration).
