More about Sheffield Adventure Film Festival:
Now in its 6th year, the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (March 4-6) is bigger and better than ever. With a record-breaking number of entries, organiser Matt Heason has hand-picked sixty of the best adventure films from around the world. For climbers and mountaineers there's a cracking line-up with 3 special screenings including 'Swiss Machine' - Ueli Steck's alpine speed-climb of the Eiger; 'Point of No Return' - the story of Jonny Copp and Micah Dash's attempt to make a first ascent of China's Mt Edgar; and 'First-Ascent The Brothers Wild' in which Timmy and his paralysed brother Sean tackle El Cap and Alaska's Ruth Gorge. There are also lectures by Andy Kirkpatrick and Kenton Cool.
Sign up to either before ShAFF and you'll be entered into a daily prize draw for a pair of Smartwool socks (to be collected at ShAFF).
ShAFF is supported by Jagged Globe, Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, Sheffield Telegraph, UKClimbing, Hammer Design, Petzl and Mammut.
