Sheffield Adventure Films (15 tbc)

BUY TICKETS 8pm Wednesday 24 July

Following submissions from hundreds of filmmakers, the 2019 touring programme from the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival presents two hours of the best of the Festival. The six films represent the pinnacle of climbing, running and biking, adventures from the snow and the streets. They include an expedition to climb the remote frozen towers of Antarctica (featuring Free Solo’s Alex Honnold and Jimmy Chin), a 12-year-old free-skiing prodigy and a five-day mountain race down the spine of Wales. Come for some summer inspiration!

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.
