Abigail Blackmore

Abigail is a television and film writer, director, and occasional actor, working in comedy, horror and drama.

Abi’s feature debut as writer/director TALES FROM THE LODGE premiered at SXSW in 2019 with a UK premiere at London’s Frightfest where she was given the Screen International Genre Rising Star award.

TALES FROM THE LODGE
“There’s something primally satisfying about the episodic structure, a narrative pattern that after all goes back to Chaucer.” Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
“a cheap, cheerful and assured debut from Abigail Blackmore.” Ed Potton, The Times

BLIND DATE
“Funny, moving, and quite simply the best short film of the year” Celluloid Heroes Radio

SHE’S BEHIND YOU (youtube)
“This short film has a lot to teach us about authors and fans and conventions and their relation with each other … very funny” Neil Gaiman
