This March the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival will showcase 44 action and adventure packed award-winning films featuring adventure sports and travel from around the globe. Get yourself to the Showroom (the largest independent cinema outside London, and voted Best Cultural Venue in the region) and make just one journey for a round-the-world the trip of a lifetime. There will also be loads of other activities to do - most of them for FREE!
From sea kayaking and free running in the UK to mountaineering in Papua New Guinea, solo big-wall climbing in California's Yosemite Valley to 107m waterfall kayaking in Africa, you can take in the films in bite-sized 2 hour chunks - as many or as little as you like - and all introduced by either the UK's best ever female climber Lucy Creamer, or Everest summiteer and professional photographer Ian Parnell. Make sure to take in some of the 24 premieres and experience the big screen, big sound and big audience feel that Youtube and Iphones just can't offer.
Loads of FREE activities and bargains on offer at ShAFF too!!!
Between stints in front of the screen there's a whole host of other stuff to do, most of it for FREE. Bring the kids along for family friendly screenings. Pick up an urban orienteering map, chill out in the photo exhibition with a good book and some live acoustic music. Drop into the rucksack sale and pick up some second hand kit bargains, have a free physio consultation, or get involved in the Steep Shot photography shoot-out as pro and amateurs battle it out for a substantial cash prize. Donate blood, enjoy a pint of the specially brewed ShAFF beer (preferably not too close to each other!) or have a go in the open Quiz compeered by none other than Sheffield's own stand-up comedian, climber and author Niall Grimes.
Even more reasons to attend ShAFF 2010

Make a weekend of it. Don't forget that the Peak District is a only a 20 minute train ride away. The festival website will feature discounted accommodation and travel links so that you can make your visit a straightforward as well as fun experience.
