Here’s a heads up for U.K. readers and flim buffs everywhere. The Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, affectionately known as ShAFF kicks off in just a few short weeks, running from February 29th through March 2nd.
This is the third iteration of the festival which aims to bring the best movies from all the other outdoor film festivals together at one event, allowing adventure and outdoor film fans to catch them all in one weekend. You can check out a complete list of the films here. Notable titles on the list include 20 Seconds of Joy, Dying For Everest, segments from King Lines, and many many more. The films focus on climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, endurance sports, skiing/snowboarding, and much much more.
On the Official ShAFF Website you’ll find not only information on each film, but also how to get tickets, as well as where to stay while at the show. There is even a Google Map to the venue so you won’t lose your way when the batteries in your GPS die.
As if all of this wasn’t enough to draw you in, the Patron for the even is none other than Joe Simpson of Touching The Void and The Beckoning Silence fame. Joe will be on hand Saturday night, March 1st, to give a live interview with Gordon Stainforth.
This sounds like a great event. I’d love to attend if I were in the area. The Simpson interview alone sounds like it would be worth the trip, and the variety of films that will be on display is amazing. If you’re anywhere in the area, you really should take the time to go catch a few of these incredible movies and hangout with fellow adventurers, both armchair or otherwise.
