The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Across The Ice

Now in its fifteenth year, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) is the largest urban adventure film festival in the UK, bringing people together to celebrate outdoor life and the adventures it offers. While screenings for 2020 are waiting to be rescheduled, the ShAFF team are curating weekly watchlists of free online films for your home viewing adventures.

They're posting a new film, free to view online, on the ShAFF Facebook page at 7pm every day, Monday to Friday. Then, at the end of the week, they're bringing the full watchlist together on their website for you to watch at your own pace.
