The city's Argyle Street Arches will invite cinemagoers to travel deep underground to experience a pseudo-vacation to a dystopia.
The weekend will see sci-fi cult classics returning to the big screen alongsideon-site free events that will run throughout the day, teaching audiences how to separate science from fiction, survive the apocalypse and save the planet. Attendees will be invited to experience hi-tech light installations and interactive pop-up performances, plus sustainable food, drinks and handmade gifts from the stalls at Platform market.
The weekend kicks-off on with Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall and also includes a 25-year anniversary screening of Tank Girl and Train To Busan, while family audiences can enjoy the gentler fare of Wall-E. This fun-packed event will put a family-friendly spin on robots, zero-waste lifestyle and reducing your carbon footprint.
Tickets to all the film screenings at Neo-Glasgow are on sale now from glasgowfilm.org
Allison Gardner, Glasgow Film Festival Co-director, said: “The Special Events are one of my favourite parts of working at Glasgow Film Festival. Every year the team bring a special kind of magic to well-loved films and a new audience are introduced to our wonderful festival. As a huge fan of sci-fi films, I am so looking forward to Neo-Glasgow and the terrors and exciting adventures we’ll encounter together. As they say in Total Recall – Get ready for the ride of your life.”
Allan Hunter, Glasgow Film Festival Co-director, added: “Who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend in Neo-Glasgow when the films are this cool? The mind-blowing, Oscar-nominated Total Recall might just be Arnold Schwarzenegger’s finest hour, Tank Girl celebrates its silver anniversary as a firm cult favourite, and the zombie virus chiller Train To Busan ensures you will never feel the same about the daily commute. Then along comes Wall-E to break your heart. It is a fantastic line-up that is bound to sell-out quickly.”
