Postponed from April 2020 until October 2020

After the sold-out UK tour of Turkish Star Wars in 2018, Matchbox Cineclub and Remakesploitation Film Club team up again with an all-day festival entirely devoted to the weird and wonderful world of Turkish film remakes - featuring unauthorised Turkish remakes of STAR WARS, SOME LIKE IT HOT, STAR TREK, DEATH WISH & THE EXORCIST.

Did you know that a Turkish remake of The Exorcist closely recreated the William Friedkin original albeit with the Catholicism replaced with Islam? Or that a Turkish reworking of Star Trek was filmed in the ancient ruins of Ephesus?

For many years, these films only circulated in low-resolution bootlegs but they have now been lovingly digitally restored and with brand-new English SDH/Captions for D/deaf audiences. There are no plans to release these films on Blu-ray, DVD or VOD, so make sure you grab this rare opportunity to see these truly fascinating films on the big screen.

£20 all-day pass; individual tickets sliding scale £0-8 (You decide what to pay, with reference to our sliding scale guide: bit.ly/slidingscaleguide). To register for a free ticket, please email tickets@matchboxcineclub.com.

NB Friday night's screening of TURKISH STAR WARS is included in Saturday's all-day pass.

NB All films screen in Turkish with English descriptive subtitles/SDH
