Abertoir Festival: Canaries screening + Q&A

Friday, 17 November 2017 - 6:00pm
Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Our festival partner, Abertoir - The International Horror Festival of Wales - will be screening Canaries followed by a Q&A with key cast and crew. Shot in various locations across the Globe including Lower Cwmtwrch, Vietnam and Martha's Vineyard, Canaries is a comedy drama in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead and Attack the Block and stars a host of well-known Welsh actors including BAFTA Cymru winners Aled Pugh and Robert Pugh.

Canaries is a funny, dark and action packed sci-fi horror comedy that pits a group of drunken friends on New Years Eve in a Welsh valley against an invasion task force of creepy time-traveling aliens. A kick-ass M.O.D agent, an insecure radio DJ and a kung fu master who owns the local b & b learn that their new years resolution this year is simple: STAY ALIVE.

Featuring Robert Pugh (Game of Thrones, Master and Commander), Aled Pugh (Stella, Ordinary Lies, Ryan a Ronnie), Kai Owen (Torchwood), Richard Mylan (Waterloo Road, Coupling) and Hannah Daniel (Hinterland). Written & directed by Peter Stray (Lost).

'An alien invasion coincides with a New Year's Eve party in a small Welsh Valley...'

The film's writer/director Peter Stray, producer Craig Russell  and actors Kevin McCurdy, Richard Mylan and Aled Pugh will take part in the Q&A.
