One of the worlds fastest growing adventure film festivals is ready to once again thrill audiences this autumn. An extraordinary collection of adventure and climbing films from some of the world’s best adventure filmmakers, featuring alpine legends, amazing adventurers and climbing icons.

Prepare to be transported through the big screen to mountains and cliff faces across the globe as they attempt to achieve their dangerous life-long ambitions...


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.

Featuring premieres of short adventure films that tell the stories and struggles of the most exciting vertical achievements from the past year, REEL ROCK 10 includes 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, be treated to a heart thumping programme that will take you to the edge...and beyond.

Here's a closer look at a selection of this year's line-up:

A LINE ACROSS the SKY

35 mins
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

15 mins
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.

ABOUT THE REEL ROCK TOUR
The Reel Rock Film Tour offers audiences so much more than just a film night (albeit with the best new adventure films around!). The screenings are inspiring events where outdoors lovers and climbers alike come together to celebrate adventure and leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their next adventure. Audiences also have a chance to win some fantastic prizes provided by the tour's sponsors.

The Reel Rock Film Tour welcomes and encourages the involvement of Mountain Rescue teams, climbing gyms/clubs and other organisations local to each event, which fosters a strong festive feeling and sense of community participation.

2015 is the fourth year Reel Rock has toured the UK and Ireland. This year we are delighted to be partnering with The North Face, Ellis Brigham and DMM.
