The Sheffield Adventure Film Festival has a well-earned reputation for being one of the foremost festivals for adventure film in the world. We are delighted to be screening a showcase of some of the best films to screen at the festival this year, with a programme featuring climbing, swimming, running and everything else that takes joy in appreciation of the great outdoors. Featuring…

Queen Maud Land
“The film where Alex Honnold actually shows fear”.
A dream team of six elite climbers including FREE SOLO’s Alex Honnold and Jimmy Chin mount an expedition to one of the world’s last great climbing frontiers: the remote frozen towers of Antarctica.

Gravitas
An incredible street workout with the Australian calisthenic athlete “Simonster”.

Kai Jones
12 year old freeskiing prodigy Kai Jones rips gnarly terrain at Jackson Hole.

The Frenchy
Jacques “The Frenchy” Houot is a Colorado icon, an 82-year-old athlete who works non-stop on skis, mountain bike, and the cyclocross race circuit…

Ar Gefn y Ddraig (Riding The Dragon)
The Berghaus Dragons Back Race is the hardest 5-day mountain race in the world! Follow Huw Jack Brassington as he attempts the race – a whopping 300+ km down the spine of Wales – for the first time!

A Mile An Hour 
Packing on the pounds after writing a PhD, Beau’s running again. Combining a need to get rid of the gut, to run again, and spend some quality time in the shed, Beau will run a mile an hour around his perfectly mile-long block. In between he’ll do as much as possible, likely becoming the fullest, meaningful, most trivial day of his life.
