Matt Heason, Director of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, has announced plans to take the festival on the road over the winter for the first time in its 13-year history.
The Best of ShAFF 2018 programme includes several films which made a significant impact at the festival when they screened in March this year. Award winners and festival favourites provide a rich 103-minute programme which will give cinema audiences a great taste of some of the excellent filmmaking coming from the outdoor and adventure scene.
The films included in the tour are ‘Where The Wild Things Play’, a rip-roaring short about adventurous women, cyclist Ben Page’s arduous trek ‘The Frozen Road’, beautiful freediving film ‘Dedicate – Diving Free’, Rab company climbing documentary ‘The Place Of The Gaels’, mountain biking film ‘Foodless Odyssey’ and the documentary ‘My Big White Thighs and Me’, which follows a young woman as she attempts to change her life through swimming.
The tour will last throughout the autumn and winter and up to the next iteration of the festival in Sheffield in spring 2019. Confirmed cinemas so far include the Glasgow Film Theatre on Sunday 21st October, Theatre Clwyd on Thursday 25th October and Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 4th and Thursday 8th November. Matt Heason, Director of ShAFF said:
“We’re really looking forward to taking ShAFF out on the road and sharing some of the amazing films we screen with audiences around the UK. These
incredible films deserve to be seen in the best cinemas in the UK and on the biggest screens and we can’t wait to see what audiences think!”
The tour will be supported by independent film distribution consultant Jonny Tull, who earlier this year led the UK releases of the films ‘Psycho Vertical’ and ‘Dirtbag: The Legend Of Fred Beckey’.
