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."
