MONSTER FEST Presents in association with Andrew Leavold will host TRASHFEST 2019 at Cinema Nova on Friday July 5th.

Compiled and edited by Andrew Leavold, Queensland-based director of the cult documentary THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG, from his thirty-plus years of excavating film oddities. Here Leavold digs deep into the Trash Video vaults (his legendary Brisbane cult movie store from 1995 to 2010) to create the ultimate two hour party mash-up for cine-generates and severely damaged pulp casualties: clips from Bollywood and Nollywood – that’s Nigerian DIY “cinema” – as well as vintage ads and trailers, brain-numbing Christian shorts, spookshow weirdies, a Filipino midget disco number, Turksploitation (ever seen the Turkish Star Wars?), the North Korean Godzilla, Indonesian flying-heads-with-guts-attached, wrestling Mexican Mummies – a glorious Trash-fried enchilada with heapings of extra cheese!

Andrew Leavold will also be present to introduce the program, and launch the Kickstarter campaign for his latest venture, FILM SAFARI – a guided tour of film locations in exotic locales, starting this October in Spain and Mexico!
