Long-unavailable Bill Murray science-fiction comedy Nothing Lost Forever will be among the films screening when Matchbox Cineclub's Weird Weekend cult film festival returns to Glasgow from August 31 to September 1.

The three-day showcase at he Centre for Contemporary Arts will also feature Tilda Swinton taking on a quadruple role in Teknolust, plus a 30th anniversary screening for the workprint cut of Joe Dante's The 'Burbs, with Dante joining the audience via Skype for a post-screening Q&A.

Other films in the line-up include, 2K restorations of I Was A Teenage Serial Killer and Mary Jane’s Not A Virgin Anymore, directed by Sarah Jacobson, along with Mike Paseornek's Vibrations and Ulrike Ottinger's Freak Orlando.

The festival will also screen the UK premiere of AGFA and Bleeding Skull’s The Neon Slime Mixtape. Plus there will be a big-screen outing for Anti-Clock, which directed by Jane Arden and Jack Bond, has the distinction of being the only feature-length film shot in the UK to be directed by a woman from the UK in the whole of the Seventies.

Rounding out the line-up are Věra Chytilová’s Wolf’s Hole, Dead Mountaineer’s Hotel (Grigori Kromanov, 1979); and the 2K-restored, extended cut of Chris Shaw’s Split (1989).

In addition to the films, there will be a panel event with Deefake creator Ctrl Shift Face and a cult film quiz. All films screen with captions for the deaf and hard of hearing.
