Extreme sports, adventure and travel will be celebrated with three days of jaw-dropping films from around the world this weekend at the annual Sheffield Adventure Film Festival.

More than 100 films have been hand-picked for this year’s ShAFF - a headline event of The Outdoor City Weekender - with screenings at the city centre Showroom Cinema, from Friday to Sunday, March 17 to 19.

The action-packed programme features top athletes and covers the full spectrum of outdoor sports from running, climbing, biking, skiing, surfing, kayaking and everything in between.

TICKETS: ShAFF 2017 offers great value - one ticket buys you a multi-film screening so you can see several films in one hit. For booking and full programme descriptions visit The Showroom at

There is something for all the family on offer.

ShAFF family friendly certified screenings will be held in a 100 seater mobile cinema truck, parked up just across the road on the main concourse outside Sheffield train station, made possible with the support of local Sheffield Businesses via Sheffield BID.

Then there’s the Adventure Bites, an hour long loop of films which plays all weekend and is suitable for young kids.

The Young Adventurer showings, Too Cool For School sessions for slightly older children, and a Teen Screen selection will showcase inspiring tales of wilderness and exploration.

From skating in Armenia (Kyang: A Short Skate Film) to mountain biking and packrafting in Mongolia with childhood friends (Flashes of the Altai) there is something new for everyone to discover.
