Film Menu: 17th Annual New Palz Climbing Film Festival
Frozen Titans - Canada, 2014. 24 mins. Filmmaker: Bryan Smith, Producer: Dave Pearson.
The unique spray of ice formations at Helmchken Falls, British Columbia, are considered the hardest ice and mixed climbing spot in the world. The 140-meter cave is a terrifying complex of giant, overhung icicles and thus has become Will Gadd’s obsession and the leading edge of modern ice climbing.
Offwidth Outlaw - USA, 2013. 6 mins. Director: Celin Serbo.
Pamela Shanti Pack is one of the most accomplished off-width climbers in the world (male or female). Since 2008 she has been seeking out North America’s most challenging inverted and vertical off-width climbs. In recent years Pamela’s focus has shifted to establishing first ascents in this unique style of climbing. This film follows Pamela in her quest to establish new routes in the desert climbing meca of Indian Creek in southeastern.
Novato - Spain, 2014. 18 mins. Director: Jon Herranz, Producer: Gerard Peris.
At age 61, Francisco Marin, also known as “Novato” (“Rookie” in Spanish), sent "Geminis" an 8b+ (5.14a) line, and nowadays he has “Florida” as a project, an impressive 8c (5.14b) route. Additionally, he is the father of Edu Marin, one of the best climbers in the world. This film transcends the climbing world and showcases this inspiring, motivating individual who wants to share his story.
Rockin Cuba - UK, 2014. 28 mins. Director: Vladimir Cellier.
A trip through music and rock climbing, the movie follows the exploration of the valley of Vinales in Cuba by six French climbers.
Beyond Good and Evil - France, 2013. 11 mins. Director: Bertrand Delapierre.
Right now, "Beyond good and evil" stays as one of the hardest routes in Alps. Beyond difficulties, history about it reflects the state of mind of high-level mountaineering: strong climbers of each generation must confront it to affirm their presence.
Stone Free - UK, 2014, 27 minutes, Director: Alastair Lee.
Julian Lines is the best climber you’ve never heard of. He is undoubtedly Britain’s most accomplished free climbing soloist with world-class free ascents to his name. This deeply personal account of archetypal anti-hero is a stunning portrait that will leave your jaw on the floor.
The Skater - USA, 2014, 3 minutes, Director: Celin Serbo.
In January of 2014 Will Mayo established several of the most difficult mixed climbing routes in North America at The Fang Amphitheater near Vail, CO.
