Since 2010, the Caltech Alpine Club has hosted the Reel Rock Film Tour, one of climbing's greatest celebrations! Each year, this Tour features a new collection of world premiere films related to climbing. This show is typically held in January on Caltech's campus.
This event includes outdoor booths before the show where you can get to know other local climbers and mountaineers, and meet our sponsors (local climbing gyms, Search and Rescue, and more).
Win prizes from local sponsors in our raffle and fun challenge games during intermission!
Since 2001, Caltech's Alpine Club has been a proud host of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Stopping at over 550 locations in 40 countries around the globe, the Tour celebrates the best films shown at that year's Festival in Banff, Alberta, Canada, one of the premier exhibitions of films about mountain and outdoor culture in the world. The Banff World Tour features epic films about skiing, running, mountain biking, rock climbing, surfing, base jumping, environmentalism, and more! Shows are typically held in March and include friendly competitions, sponsor activation, raffle prize giveaways, and lots of hype!
We are proud to present No Man's Land Film Festival in celebration of female empowerment in the outdoors—all are welcome! Join us for a selection of films that Un-Define Feminine, plus engage in exploring your role in the outdoor industry and improving representation!
All proceeds of these film festivals directly support the Caltech Alpine Club. The club uses these funds for a variety of purposes, including buying sports rental gear to loan to people, hosting discounted classes that teach people about safety and first aid in the outdoors, and providing free public talks. Membership is free and open to the community!
