There are more climbing films than ever at this year's Sheffield Adventure Film Festival with 18 films spread over four Climb Film sessions plus our Mountain Film session of which seven are by British film-makers.

It's our 8th year and our biggest festival with 80 films and 6 screens. It's looking like the Showroom will be busier than ever. Ticket sales are already up on this time last year. Award-winning film-maker Al Lee's produced another amazing trailer with soundtrack by Sheffield 6 piece Screaming Maldini (20,000+ views already).
