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

The Runaways is a new Sheffield-made family adventure film, now available to watch online.

Shot around Whitby and the North York Moors, the film is a charming family adventure story about three kids on the run with a couple of donkeys. As they're chased across the backbone of North Yorkshire, they confront both the harsh landscapes and what it means to be siblings in this throwback to classic family adventure films with a modern aesthetic.

The film stars Mark Addy, Tara Fitzgerald and BAFTA winner Molly Windsor.

Director Richard Heap says: "Hopefully the film can be a nice reminder of the Yorkshire countryside that's waiting for us when we are released from lockdown!"

Stream online via Vimeo – £4.49 to rent / £9.99 to buy.
