ShAFF 2022 Award Winning Films

ShAFF 2022 Award Winning Films Announced



Ahead of Sheffield Adventure Film Festival 2022, the award-winning films have been revealed. The ShAFF team announce the winners ahead of the event so festival-goers can make sure they see the best films of the year, and decide whether they agree with the judges! A selection of award winning films can be seen at Best of ShAFF 1 and Best of ShAFF 2 from 18-20 March.

Sheffield Adventure Film Festival receives hundreds of submissions from filmmakers across the globe, and this year’s films include high adrenaline and big tricks, alongside quieter moments of contemplation and revelation. From environmentalists climbing strangler fig trees in Costa Rica, Peruvian housewives tackling South America’s highest peak, and a solo photographer on a mission to capture elusive mountain goats in the depths of a Yukon winter, films reflect the diversity of the outdoor experience around the world.

Winning films include: Learning To Drown - Grand Prize for Best Film, Best Ski & Board Film sponsored by Jottnar and Best Women In Adventure film sponsored by BMC, Spirit of Adventure Award sponsored by John Muir Trust: Farewell To Adventure, Made in Sheffield sponsored by Buffalo Systems: Days Off. The People’s Choice, sponsored by Street Food Chef is voted by festival-goers and will be announced the week after ShAFF.
