Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Abertoir >> 2015
Abertoir is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, a big occasion for a festival that started out very small indeed. It's always punched above its weight with the quality of film content and guests it's brought in, and this year is no different, with a veritable feast of fright for fans to look forward to. There's a retrospective looking at Vincent Price's Anglophile work, some great new Japanese content and, alongside the films, episodes of TV series Attack On Titan and Danger 5. Guests of honour include Victoria Price (daughter of the great Vincent), composer Fabio Frizzi, actor/director Steve Oram and playwright Robert Lloyd Parry.
The festival runs from November 10 to 15.
