Film Menu

 
FRANK AND THE TOWER
Directed by Fitz Cahall & Brendan Leonard; 2015, USA, 12 minutes

Frank Sanders first climbed Devils Tower in 1970 which was the beginning of his long climbing odyssey through North America. Over the past 47 years, the Tower has remained a constant through addiction and sobriety. The 63-year-old has climbed the formation more than 2,000 times.
 
GOLDEN GATE
Directed by Jon Glassberg; 2015, USA, 17 minutes
 
She’s been trad climbing for only three years, but Emily Harrington didn’t let that sway her from the magnetic pull of El Capitan’s ‘Golden Gate’ (5.13 VI). 6 days and 40 pitches later, she stood on the summit with broken skin, aching muscles and a smile that stretched across Yosemite Valley. Here Emily shows us that it’s just as much about the journey as it is the destination.
 
OPERATION MOFFAT
Directed by Claire Carter & Jen Randall; 2015, UK, 20 minutes
 
Operation Moffat takes inspiration and wit from the colourful climbing life of Britian’s First Female Mountain Guide, Gwen Moffat. Writer Claire Carter and Filmmaker Jen Randall scramble, swim and barefoot climb through Gwen’s most cherished British landscapes, grappling with her preference for mountains over people, adventure over security, wilderness over tick lists.
 
STUART RANGE: THE ENCHANTING TRIPLE
Directed by Shane Wilder; 2015, USA, 14 minutes
 
The Enchanting Triple documents a climbing journey through the Stuart Range, a jagged collection of peaks in the center of Washington state. A decade of dedication to these mountains laid the groundwork for this three-peak enchainment by climbers Jens Holsten and Blake Herrington.
 
TRANSITION
Directed by Chris Prescott and Paul Diffley; 2015, UK, 45 minutes
 
UK competition and sport climber Natalie Berry makes the move into traditional and winter climbing. Acting as mentor along the way is Scottish all round climber Dave MacLeod. The film follows Natalie over the course of two years as she attempts to pursue a life in the mountains.
 
WOMEN'S SPEED ASCENT
Directed by Chris Alstrin;2015, USA, 5 minutes

Some records are just meant to be broken. Mayan Smith-Gobat and Libby Sauter just knew that the women`s speed record for the ascent of The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, California was their`s for the taking. Crushing the old record and standing atop El Capitan at 5 hours 02 minutes after their first test run and 4 hours 43 minutes after the final attempt just a few days later.
