A brand-new collection of the year’s best climbing films filled with jaw-dropping action, heart and humor!

This film fest has long been a favorite annual winter tradition in Library Hall. But since the pandemic won't allow us to gather in-person for this spectacular night of adrenaline stoke, Bud Werner Library is joining forces to promote the virtual global premiere of the newest REEL ROCK film festival.

Four new films will be available to watch for 72 hours with your virtual host, Alex Honnold. Yep, Alex in your living room, moderating Q&A sessions with the stars of each film. Capturing the greatest stories and sends from the year in climbing, the four new films of REEL ROCK deliver a joyful dose of inspiration, heart and humor. Witness an unimaginable triumph of determination, an epic journey of self-discovery, a magical adventure across the world and a bond-building expedition that forever changes lives.

Enjoy the festival, and we'll see you back in Library Hall next year!
