Citadel, a new epic mountain film - hosted by Calder Valley Search and Rescue
Wednesday, 23 September 2015
The Mytholmroyd based Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) will host the world premiere of a new epic mountain film Citadel by the renowned adventure film-maker Alastair Lee. The screening at Hebden Bridge Picture House will take place on Thursday 8th October and is part of the Brit Rock Film Tour 2015.
Citadel features the UK's pro alpinists Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey as they embark on a first ascent in a stunning and remote corner of the Alaskan wilderness and is the world's first 4k mountain film.
The 8 October evening follows the incredible success of last year's capacity sell-out screening of the Brit Rock Film Tour which CVSRT also hosted. Proceeds raised from the evening will be donated to CVSRT.
Tim Ingram, CVSRT Media Secretary said, "Following the success of last years event, Alastair Lee couldn't resist the charm of Hebden Bridge, so contacted the team to ask if we would be interested in hosting the premiere of the 2015 tour. Since he asked so nicely, how could we refuse?"
"CVSRT are extremely honoured to be asked to launch this year's tour and we are all looking forward to hosting yet another adrenaline-fuelled fundraising evening with liberal splashes of the inimitable British spirit. This is a great opportunity for the team to raise essential funds but also perfect timing to mention our forthcoming year of celebrations to mark the teams 50th Anniversary which begins in February 2016."
The focus of this years Brit Rock Film Tour is on the film-maker's native subject matter - 'mountains'. The tour will feature three home-grown adventure films. The first is a short film called Wild Atlantic which is a climbing montage from the west coast of Ireland by climbing photographer Craig Hiller.
Following this is a new film from Jen Randal and Claire Carter called Operation Moffat - an inspiring and charming movie archive account of Britain's first female mountain guide, the amazing Gwen Moffat, now aged 92.
The evening will include a Q&A session with Alastair Lee and Matt Helliker, a surprise guest comedy featurette and a fundraising raffle with some amazing prizes. The Brit Rock Film Tour is the first home-grown adventure tour to emerge from the vibrant UK film making industry.
Tickets for the premiere at Hebden Bridge Picture House can be purchased from any CVSRT member or via the online ticket page.
