Reel Rock 16 presented by Citizen’s State Bank
Every year, the REEL ROCK Film Tour brings premieres of the best new climbing films to communities around the world, with 500 locations in 40 countries – and counting. REEL ROCK events feature athlete and filmmaker appearances, prize giveaways, sponsor activation and fundraising for non-profit organizations.
Founded in 2005 by groundbreaking filmmakers Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer, REEL ROCK has grown into the premier global platform for award-winning climbing films that weave bold action, humor, heart, and soul into larger-than-life human stories for a wide audience, from the core climber to the armchair mountaineer. From feature documentaries like The Dawn Wall and Valley Uprising to surprising shorts like Dodo’s Delight and Alone on the Wall, REEL ROCK films have earned dozens of festival awards, rave reviews, and even Emmy’s. And all are available to stream or download for endless home entertainment and inspiration. Drawing on a deep archive of footage from climbing’s biggest stars and historic moments, and our team of filmmakers who are constantly on location, REEL ROCK also produces cutting-edge short-form content for our social channels and commercial projects for our partners.
This year’s lineup:
Bridge Boys | Pete Whittaker, Tom Randall A horizontal big-wall adventure on the longest, hardest and most ridiculous crack climb ever attempted.
Barefoot Charles | Charles Albert An opera-singing, cave-dwelling, animal-skinning minimalist tackles futuristic boulder problems in the Fontainebleau forest.
Big Things to Come | Alex Johnson Elite climber Alex Johnson’s struggle with a boulder problem propels her on a decade-long journey of self-discovery.
Cuddle | Alex Honnold, Tommy Caldwell, Adam Stack A massive, remote link-up of 17 alpine summits pushes the world’s best climbers to the brink – and into each others’ shivering arms.
