Big screens, big discounts: Presenting ShAFF 2018

Posted by Peter Burnside on 26/01/2018

Big screens and big discounts. All BMC members can get 15% off tickets for all events at ShAFF this year. Taking place at the Showroom Cinema on 9-11 March, the 2018 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is brought to you by the BMC.

Our support for the festival continues to boom, and the BMC is proud to present the 2018 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) for the second consecutive year. We feel that ShAFF is the perfect embodiment of what we and our members love, and gives us a great opportunity to promote the activities of our 85,500 strong adventure-seeking membership.

With films reflecting the full range of core activities that the BMC represents, from mountaineering and bouldering through to trail running and hiking, we hope to connect with as many of our members as possible. And to make sure you don't miss out, all BMC members get 15% off the price of tickets.

How to get the 15% discount deal

  • Discounts on everything! Get 15% off all tickets for all events apart from the Year In Cycling event.

Unleashed for ShAFF: the latest BMC TV movies

9b
Where is your limit? Would you recognise it? For Steve McClure it’s an endless series of matchstick edges and nothing holds, high above the Yorkshire Dales. If this climb was one move longer, it’d still be a dream… instead it’s the UK’s hardest-ever climb. This is only way you’ll see footage of this cutting-edge route.
6 minutes

Mind Control
For Hazel Findlay, climbing means one thing: pushing yourself. With a surgeon about to slice into her shoulder, Hazel has to contemplate the biggest challenge of all: a life without climbing. An engaging short by leading filmmaker Jen Randall.
15 minutes

Without a Partner
Pete Whittaker is no stranger to the edge. But his latest mission – a rope solo of El Cap in Yosemite – nearly broke him. With this brilliant and immersive film by Adam Bailes, you’ll feel like you’re up there, suffering with Pete.

Don't miss: Mend Our Mountains public launch

Kicking off proceedings on Friday 9 March is the public launch of the BMC's new Mend Our Mountains: Make One Million appeal. Mend Our Mountains aims to raise £1 million for a range of vital path repair projects within Britain’s entire family of 15 National Parks, including the Peak District National Park. British broadcaster, anthropologist and BMC ambassador Mary Ann-Ochota and British mountaineer Alan Hinkes OBE will introduce the reasons behind the appeal. The first of the ShAFF film programme sessions will follow, with a screening of films celebrating mountains across the world.

Alex Messenger, head of marketing and communications at the BMC, says: “The BMC fights for the rights and protects the freedoms of climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers. With over 85,500 members, we’re stronger than ever before, and to celebrate our growing membership we’re very proud to return as the presenting sponsor of ShAFF 2018. The ShAFF programme will inspire everyone, from boulderers to mountaineers, and all our members will get 15% off tickets too.”
