Updates - films and passes!

We're pleased to unveil three more selections from the Abertoir 2020 digital line-up, as well as information about our pass sales.

Natalie Erika James’ RELIC is arguably one of this year’s most acclaimed horror films, and rightly so – and we’re thrilled to be able to screen it as part of Abertoir 2020. This is a terrifying, moving and truly unmissable film.

Next, we’re pleased to be screening BLOOD HARVEST, formerly known as The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw, a creeping slice of folk Americana, featuring a wonderful performance from A Dark Song’s Catherine Walker.

And last but by absolutely no means at all least, we’re thrilled to announce the UK premiere of Lloyd Kaufmann’s latest, #ShakespeareShitstorm! Gross-out comedy or one the best Shakespeare adaptations for a long time? See for yourself at Abertoir 2020!

Finally, set your alarms, clear your diaries – 4pm, this Sunday, 27th September. #Abertoir2020 passes will go on sale! As always we’ve tried to keep passes as affordable as possible - individual passes will be £39, and that gets you a digital pass to all films and events, plus a physical goodie bag and brochure sent to you. We know some of you plan to watch with partners, family and friends so we’ve got some alternative passes that allow you to support the festival while making a saving when watching together - our 2-person pass is £49 pass which means you’ll get one digital pass but we’ll throw in two goodie bags, and our mates pass is £59 and we’ll send you three goodie bags! We won't be enforcing these but if you're able to support us with that little bit extra, we'd be grateful!

We’ll be dropping all the vital info earlier in the day on Sunday so you're ready for the passes to go on sale, but don't worry, there's no limit on them! We'll also have a few juicy bits of programme info and our festival artwork to unveil, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled...!

PS. You also might have noticed - we've added an extra evening! The festival will run 28/10 - 01/11 (Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and fulldays the rest)!
