ShAFF 2009 Begins This Week!

The 2009 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival kicks off this Friday, Feb. 27th and will run through the upcoming weekend. In its fourth iteration, the ShAFF is adding more films, activities, and guest then ever before, making it one of the premiere adventure film fests anywhere.

More than 50 films will be shown over the course of the three days that the event run. These films cover the gamut of outdoor activities, with climbing, climbing, skiing, kayaking, mountaineering, and a host of other activities well represented. Many of the films are award winners from other festivals, but some will be making their debut at ShAFF itself.

In addition to all of these great films, there is an impressive list of guests that will be making an appearance as well, including Chris Sharma, Adele Pennington, Ron Fawcett and more. Throw in plenty of live music, a climbing wall, orienteering sessions, and lots more activities, and you’ll have a weekend full of fun and adventure.

Check out the trailer for ShAFF below. It gives you a good idea of what is on tap for everyone in attendance.

Looks like it’s going to be a great time.

  1. I wish I were there too…
    But instead I wait impatiently for a local edition of one of the Polish extreme sports’ film festivals: ‘360 degrees’. It includes showing such classics as ‘Touching the Void’ and ‘Deep Blue’ but also a 2007 documentary by Mark Obenhaus – ‘Steep’ – about freeride extreme skiing.
    I’m hoping to enjoy it ;o)
