(Boulder, Colorado)â€”Sender Films and Big UP Productions are pleased to announce the 2007 Reel Rock Film Tour (www.reelrocktour.com), an annual event that showcases the best new films about the sport of climbing and brings together communities of climbers, outdoor enthusiasts and film aficionados for high-energy evenings of entertainment.
This year’s Reel Rock Film Tour highlights Chris Sharma’s King Lines, which will take audiences globetrotting alongside Chris Sharmaâ€”the 25-year old climbing phenomenonâ€”as he discovers and climbs the world’s most outrageously difficult and beautiful rock climbing formations. The 2007 Reel Rock Film Tour kicks off with shows in California and Colorado in early September, starting an expanded, two-month schedule that will reach as many as 60 cities in North America and beyond. Sharma, who has set the bar in his sport with improbable, gravity-defying feats of free-climbing wizardry, will make rare appearances at several shows in California, as well as at other major Reel Rock Film Tour stops in the northeast. The 2007 Reel Rock Tour is presented by WindstopperÂ®, and is additionally sponsored by Climbing Magazine, Prana, Evolv and Petzl. Complete information on the 2007 Reel Rock Tour, including tour dates, locations and venues, can be found on www.reelrocktour.com starting in June.
â€œSender Films and Big UP Productions are privileged to capture this intimate look at Chris Sharma’s world,â€ said Nick Rosen of the Reel Rock Film Tour, which, in 2006, its inaugural year, presented award-winning films to over 10,000 people in over 50 locations. â€œWe are bringing Sharma’s mind-blowing prowess to big screens across the country, and audiences will be breathless and inspired by his accomplishments.â€
