THE EXHILARATING FILM TOUR STARTS SEPTEMBER 2015 An annual tour of the world’s best new adventure and climbing films.
The Reel Rock Film Tour, one of the world’s fastest growing adventure film festivals, is ready to once again thrill audiences this autumn with more than 14 screenings across the UK and Ireland.
For the past decade, the REEL ROCK Film Tour has defined the standard for adventure films, providing audiences with an annual offering of stunning big screen action, compelling stories and some of the most remarkable alpine and climbing accomplishments of our time.
In its landmark 10th year, REEL ROCK 10 is set to raise the bar once again, as it kicks off its worldwide tour to over 450 locations across all seven continents.
REEL ROCK 10 includes exclusive premieres of short adventure films that tell the stories and struggles of the most exciting vertical achievements from the past year, including an exclusive look at the history-making Dawn Wall free ascent and an epic traverse across the jagged peaks of Patagonia.
This year, audiences will share in moments of hilarity, struggle and triumph as these hardcore and often larger-than-life climbers take on awe-inspiring challenges. From big walls to big moves, crowds around the world will be treated to a heart thumping programme that will take them to the edge, and beyond. Here’s a closer look at a selection of this year’s line-up:
A LINE ACROSS the SKY
The Fitz Roy traverse is one of the most sought after achievements in modern alpinism; a gnarly journey across seven jagged summits and 13,000 vertical feet of climbing. Who knew it could be so much fun? Join Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold on the inspiring — and at times hilarious — quest that earned them the prestigious Piolet d’Or award.
DAWN WALL: FIRST LOOK
Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson’s epic final push to free climb the Dawn Wall was a truly historic feat. It marked the greatest climbing achievement of a generation and captured the world’s imagination. As the Reel Rock team work to create a major feature film documenting the event slated for next year, REEL ROCK 10 will include an exclusive first look at the drama playing out at the crux of the route.
