Weird Weekend


Matchbox Cineclub presents a whole weekend of strange and unseen cinema from around the world. WEIRD WEEKEND brings orphans, outcasts and outliers from across time and space, with a host of special guests, Q&As and events, to the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow.

WEIRD WEEKEND 2019 takes place 30/08, 31/08 and 01/09/2019.

We’ve scoured the world to bring you some of the wildest, weirdest WTF movies ever made, almost all entirely unavailable in the UK – not on Netflix, DVD or VOD – including many never-before-screened in Scotland. We have icons of cult cinema and future favourites, plus incredible shorts and plenty of bonus content, all guaranteed to blow your mind…
