The Oil & Water Project
Oil & Water tells of the adventures of Seth Warren and Tyler Bradt, two friends and world-class kayakers who drove, petroleum-free, over 21,000 miles down the Pan-American Highway in a retro-fitted bio-diesel Japanese fire truck named "Baby". The film captures their passion for sustainable living practices and the humor they maintained in the face of many challenges along the way.
North Of The Sun
Winner of 2013 Sheffield Adventure Film Festival Grand Prize for Best Film and Silver Medalist in Best Spirit of Adventure Film. (For full list of result click here)
Wavedreamer called it: "The most unlikely, best surf film ever". Two Norwegian friends have a crazy idea about building a beach hut north of the arctic circle and spending the winter living off flotsam and jetsam. Extreme beach-combing, stunning cinematography and a cabin Bilbo Baggins would be proud to call home.
Writer, journalist and enthusiastic amateur climber Ed Douglas reviews our Grand Prize winner 'North of the Sun' for the online arts magazine 'Calm and Fearless'. Ed says: "Anyone with a passion for wild places and an interest in the impacts we have on the planet will love it. And anyone who wants a fresh take on what our lives can be will find it an inspiration". Read the rest of his review.

When & Where
Cycle To The Cinema
The cinema where it all started is the lovely Moorland Discovery Centre in the woods at Longshaw Estate very close to the Fox House Pub, some 5 miles outside of Sheffield on the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. The wooden building, insulated with sheep's wool in the walls, is cosy, pretty, and kitted out with a decent sound system, projector and screen. It seats around 50 people.
The evenings usually start at 8pm giving you time to grab a bite to eat after work and cycle to the cinema. You will normally be able to order tea/ coffee and cake when booking your tickets so don't worry about low blood-sugar. Things will wrap up between 9.30pm and 10pm giving you time to freewheel home and jump in the shower before bed.
...et voila - exercise, entertainment and a social, all in the same evening.
In case you are wondering, yes we will allow you in if you don't come by bike, but we hope you'll enter into the spirit of things.
