2010 REEL ROCK Filmmaking Competition is happening!


The REEL ROCK Film Tour is excited to announce the 2010 REEL ROCK Filmmaking competition.

The 2010 REEL ROCK Filmmaking competition is on. This year, there are no categories. Enter your best two-minute climbing-related film by JULY 20, 2010. Winners will win mega prize packages from our title sponsors, Windstopper and The North Face (including outerwear, tents, sleeping bags, and the works) and our supporting sponsors, Petzl and Evolv, are throwing down climbing gear and shoes. We also have two new sponsors this year who are helping to sweeten the pot: Sterling Rope, makes the lightest, best-handling climbing ropes in the world, and they're throwing two of 'em into the mix. And Goal0, is an exciting new company making rugged, renewable power solutions for adventurers around the world. They're offering a Sherpa Adventure Kit, which is the perfect way for all you filmmakers out there to keep your cameras and laptops charged while out on a shooting expedition. So get out there and make some magic!

The fifth annual REEL ROCK film tour launching in September 2010 is the largest climbing event in the world. REEL ROCK shows are spirited events where climbers and outdoor enthusiasts come together to celebrate adventure and sample the ultimate adventure in filmmaking.

In 2009 alone, REEL ROCK screened in over 120 locations world wide, drew over 35,000 audience members, raised over $15,000 for nonprofits, partnered with more than 120 retailers, university outing clubs, and climbing gyms, and won copious media coverage and critical praise.

Attached to the tour is the Filmmaking Competition. The competition builds on the success and popularity of the '08 and '09 competitions in which tens of thousands of people voted for their favorite entries online. The best entries will be posted online this summer, and we'll award two prizes: an Audience Award as determined by online voting, and the Judges' Choice Award, determined by the filmmakers of the REEL ROCK Tour.

The winners will be announced at the Boulder premiere Sept.16th, 2010, and will be featured on the tour.
