Reel Rock 11 in Kimberley

Five new adventure, climbing films offered at Kimberley Conference Centre

Climbing the Bugaboos with Boys in the Bugs.

Fans of adventure films have an opportunity to view five of the best new films from around the world this Saturday, November 19 at the Kimberley Conference Centre.

Brought to you by the Dirtbag Fest folks, Reel Rock 11 screens at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6.

In the line up are:

YOUNG GUNS

Meet the new faces of climbing: 15-year-old Ashima Shiraishi and 16-year-old Kai Lightner are the leaders of the next generation, already taking the sport to the next level. A trip to Norway puts their skills to the test, and Ashima attempts to make history on a V15 boulder in Japan.

BOYS IN THE BUGS

Will Stanhope and Matt Segal are elite-level crack climbers and world-class goofballs.

Laugh along as they go for broke on an epic four-year battle to climb a forbidding 5.14 finger crack high in the Canadian alpine wilderness of the Bugaboos.

RAD DAD

Lone wolf Mike Libecki travels to the most remote corners of the globe to find unclimbed walls and establish first ascents. When Mike becomes a father, he has a new challenge: to reconcile his life of adventure with the demands of parenthood, but he may also gain a new partner for his expeditions.

DODO’S DELIGHT

Pack your penny whistle and batten down the hatches for a madcap sailing adventure in the Arctic Circle aboard the good ship Dodo’s Delight. Join Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Ben Ditto, and brothers Nico and Olivier Favresse for a rollicking musical journey across open seas and up unclimbed big walls.

Tickets are $12 online, www.dirtbagfestival.com and www.eventbrite.ca. and $15 at the door.
