What is REEL ROCK?
REEL ROCK Film Tour brings to the big screens adventure and climbing films for the public around the world. Each year a few special short films are produced for this tour, covering a wide range of activities from slackline and highline to rock climbing and ice climbing.
Founders Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer, after collaborating to make tours for their individual films, made the first REEL ROCK Film Tour in 2006.
Since then the tour has grown to about 500 broadcasts a year with about 150,000+ participants. REEL ROCK partners with local outdoor retailers, universities and gyms to organize show events every year. In 2011, the tour also started a series of festivals – REEL ROCK Fest events created to bring together the climbing and outdoor communities for a weekend of coordinated training, competitions, movie watching and projects for the benefit of the community.
We hope that REEL ROCK 13 on show at Transylvania Mountain Festival by Garmin will bring you new perspectives on the mountains and the limits of people practicing mountain sports.
The athletes featured in Reel Rock 13 series are: MADALEINE SORKIN, CONRAD ANKER, ADAM ONDRA, ALEX HONNOLD, SAVANNAH CUMMINS, JIMMY CHIN, ANNA PFAFF, CEDAR WRIGHT, REZA ALIPOUR, CLAIRE BUHRFEIND.
