7th Annual ShAFF Film Comp Winners Announced

Report by planetFear

The Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is delighted to announce that ‘Unbreakable:  The Western States 100' has won the 2012 ShAFF Best Film award.

Festival Director Matt Heason says:  "It's a double first for ShAFF - the first ever running film to win and the first feature length film to win.  What makes it stand out in a year where we've had a record-breaking number of films on show is the brilliant story telling and characters.  And it proves you need nothing more than a pair of trainers to have an adventure.   And just to prove what a great film it is, with a week to go, it's sold out.  But don't worry - we've put an extra showing on Sunday evening."



Sheffield Adventure Film Festival Judge, Team GB duathlete and Adventure Sports Writer Nikalas Cook says:  "My fellow judges Lucy Creamer and Tim Glasby and I were in total agreement about ‘Unbreakable'.  The 2010 Western States 100 was a perfect storm of a race
with four of the greatest, undefeated mountain runners on earth fighting to win the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world.  Even if
you already know the result, it'll still have you on the edge of your seat
right down to the final few miles."
