"A Year Along the Abandoned Road" is a Norwegian short film from 1991 directed by Morten Skallerud. It was shot on 70 mm film and shows a whole year passing by in Norway's Børfjord in just 12 minutes. The camera was moved slightly each day, and so the film gives the viewer the impression of seamlessly travelling around the fjord as the year goes along, each day compressed into a few seconds. The film is traditionally the opening movie of the annual 70 mm film festival held at the Cinemateket film club in Oslo.

The film won the Norwegian Amandaprisen for best short film in 1991, and the Grand Prix at the Tampere Film Festival in 1992.

The band a-ha used footage from the film in the music video for their song "Lifelines".
