Leading film maker Alastair Lee presents the Brit Rock film tour – homegrown adventure comes to the big screen.

The world premiere of the Brit Rock film tour promises to be a special event with introductions from many of the stars of the film including Steve Birkinshaw, Jules Lines and Mina Leslie-Wujastyk  as well as some behind the scenes tales and a short Q & A with film maker Alastair Lee.

Alastair and his crew of talented creatives at Posing Productions have produced an all new series of adventure films with the full gambit of state of the art film making kit. From cutting edge athletes, wild highlines, palm-sweating solo climbs to crazy downhill mountain biking.

The Brit Rock film tour is the first home grown adventure tour to emerge from the vibrant UK film making industry.  Brit Rock comes right from the heart of the UK adventure scene, with liberal splashes of the inimitable British spirit.

Adding to the program are short interjections with observational and comedy breaks, from the likes of the leftfield author Niall Grimes and funny man Dave Halsted.

Headline acts of the Brit Rock line up include:

Stone Free - Julian Lines is the best climber you've never heard of.   He is undoubtedly Britain's most accomplished free climbing soloist with world-class free ascents to his name. This deeply personal account of the archetypal anti-hero is a stunning portrait that will leave your jaw on the floor.

All My Own Stunts – Yorkshireman Rob Jarman is a downhill mountain bike specialist and professional stuntman.  This gripping and emotional film tells the story of a near fatal accident and his road to recovery where he sets his sight on a UK downhill speed record.  Redoubtable, affable and hilarious, it's a compelling ride with Rob Jarman, on, and more often than not, off his bike.

Set of Wainwrights - The unassuming Steve Birkinshaw is one of the great fell runners and fittest men ever to exist.  Have your mind and arteries blown as Steve attempts to break Joss Naylor's 27 year old record by linking up all 214 Lakeland Wainwright summits in under seven days. A level of suffering breaching into the super human.

Project Mina - Are pro climbers anything like you and me?  Do they ever put lots of effort into training only to fail miserably at a comp and question why they bother at all, or is it all glory and sending?  Project Mina is a look at the moments between the top-outs and success, following Mina Leslie-Wujastyk during the 2013 competition season.  Filmed by the talented Jen Randal.
