ShAFF Winners Announced

The third annual Sheffield Adventure Film Festival took place over the weekend of Feb 29 to Mar 2. Despite frustratingly nice weather more people than ever turned up.

The festival winners were:

During judging it was decided that there was a need to add a 6th category for the film that best captured the 'Spirit Of Adventure'. This was awarded to: Underdeveloped - Festival Cut

ShAFF would like to thank judges Ian Parnell, Niall Grimes and Gordon Stainforth.
