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."
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.”
Fellow judge, Lucy Creamer, the UK's top female climber, says: "I’m not a runner, so having to watch a running film that was an hour and a half long was not an exciting prospect. But I have already watched this twice and now can’t wait to see it on the big screen. It is an extremely well put together film that combines different stories interweaved throughout to create genuine interest in these world class athletes; the race itself leads you towards an incredibly nail biting finish. How can a running film be nail biting? Well, watch this and you’ll find out. An absolute joy that almost made me want to go out running- not a hundred miles though!"
