SHAFF Set For Showroom
The annual Sheffield Adventure Film Festival 2015 will be hitting the Showroom Cinema once again on March 20-22.
Adrenaline junkies can get their visual adrenaline fix by viewing over 100 short films and features based around adventure, travel and extreme sports. This year will be the festival’s tenth and will showcase a variety of films from acclaimed producers and directors following thrill seekers on their blood pumping exploits.
One of the most highly anticipated feature length films for ShAFF 2015 is Valley Uprising. Directed by Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen and Josh Lowell, the film documents the untold story of the Yosemite Valley rock climbers. Starring legendary climbers Dean Potter, Alex Honnold and Lynn Hill, Valley Uprising has won Grand Prize at both Banff and Kendal, so is expected to pick up a handful of awards at this year’s event. Films this year will also be shown in the Pennine Lecture Theatre at Sheffield Hallam University. Additionally, attendees will be treated to talks and lectures from world class adventurers on their personal experiences of their epic climbs, runs and rides. With ‘Road From Karakol’ claiming Best Film last year, it’ll be interesting to see who can climb to similar heights this year. Tickets for this year’s event are available to buy now and a trailer of the upcoming films will be online soon.
Fans of the film festival can catch up on part two of the highlights from the 2014 festival at the Showroom on March 2.
