Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> Abertoir >> 2023
This year's Abertoir features some great new features which have enjoyed success on the international festival circuit, plus some pleasingly sinister Welsh shorts and a talk on Welsh horror traditions. There's also an old favourite as you've never seen it before in sing-along-a-Wicker Man. Not all the films have been announced yet so we'll be adding to this page as more is revealed.
The festival runs from 14 to 19 November.
