Best Of ShAFF 2013 - 3rd of 3
A look back at some of the best films from the 2013 festival. If you didn’t catch them here’s your chance to do so. If you did, well, come and watch them again!
China Roc Trip (23mins)
More than 600 climbers joined the Petzl team on their annual trip - this time to the Getu Valley in the heart of China. 250 brand new pitches on incredible limestone cliffs and caves including Dani Ensueno's ascent of the 8c Corazon de Ensueno for which he won Climbing Magazine's prestigious 'Golden Piton'. The film's light-touch edit, stunning scenery and infectious hip-hop soundtrack mean you don't need to be a climber to appreciate the action.
My Life_ The Big Climb (28mins)
Winner of 2013 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival Best Climbing Film (Silver)
13 year old Ella becomes the youngest ever girl to summit the big wall of Yosemite's El Capitan with her "smelly, snoring" dad, Sheffield climber Andy Kirkpatrick, in tow. Imagine doing 1,000 pull-ups a day for four days without enough food or sleep.
So Fine (5mins)
There can't be many adventure sports films featuring a banjo-playing kayaker crooning to a muppet. A loveable, offbeat promo video for Canadian singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film-maker and expedition kayaker’s catchy tune 'So Fine'.
The Dragon’s Back (55mins)
Winner of 2013 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival Best Running Film Award
Also Silver in Best Feature Film and Bronze in Best Film categories.
One of the world's toughest running events, the original Dragon’s Back Race happened just once in September 1992 and ever since, it has been whispered about with a mix of awe and trepidation. Tracing the mountainous spine of Wales from Conwy Castle to Carreg Cennen Castle this incredible 5-day journey is approximately 320 kilometres long with 17,000 metres. Follow the exploits of those who dared take on the even tougher 2012 course including all the 3,000 ft Welsh mountains on day one.
