Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) 2021

Now entering it’s 16th year, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is the largest urban adventure film festival in the UK.

An international film festival, each year ShAFF receives hundreds of submissions from around the world. The events of the past year have affected everyone, and that’s reflected in stories ranging from skateboarding in the silent streets of San Francisco, being caught in the Austrian Alps as the world locked down, or coping with life on the front line through climbing in the Peak District. Lockdowns have given filmmakers time to edit and pull together existing footage, meaning that this year’s submissions are some of the strongest ever.

Browse and book tickets for the full ShAFF programme below. For more info on the festival visit www.shaff.co.uk.
