Wales Goes Dark: Gothic
With tales that feed on our darkest fears and desires, this winter screens across the UK are filled with woe and wickedness as we dive into the dark heart of film with Gothic, this year’s BFI blockbuster project celebrating one of Britain’s biggest cultural exports as revealed through four compelling themes: Monstrous, The Dark Arts, Haunted and Love is a Devil.
Across the nation, Film Hub Wales will be working with Abertoir Horror Film Festival and the BFI to offer a programme of events around the gothic and macabre. The season features some incredible BFI reissues of British classic horror films including some featuring the great Peter Cushing to celebrate his centenary, new titles from Welsh Talent including Chris Crow’s bloodthirsty Viking tale, The Darkest Day and Darkened Rooms screenings in some of the most haunted castles and stately homes in Wales which will put a shiver in your spine [Literally. Warm clothing is recommended!].
