A team of rescuers will host the premiere of a new film by a renowned adventure film-maker.

Alastair Lee’s The Citadel will screen at the Picture House in Hebden Bridge next month.

Proceeds will go to the Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team, which is based in nearby Mytholmroyd in West Yorkshire.

It is the second year the team has launched Al Lee’s Brit Rock Film Tour.

A Calder Valley SRT team spokesperson said: “Alastair Lee, the award-winning film-maker couldn’t resist the charm of Hebden Bridge, so recently contacted Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team to ask if we would be interested in hosting the premiere of the 2015 tour, featuring the world premiere of his new mountain adventure film The Citadel.

“Since he asked so nicely, how could we resist? 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 evening with three exceptional home-grown adventure films with liberal splashes of the inimitable British spirit, similar to last year.

“The focus this year is on Alastair’s native subject matter, mountains. The tour will feature three stunning films.”

Also on the bill for the 8 October screening are Wild Atlantic, a charming and inspirational montage by Belfast-based climbing photographer Craig Hiller, and Operation Moffat, a new offering from Jen Randal and Claire Carter.

Alastair Lee’s new film features UK alpinists Matt Helliker and Jon Bracy embarking on a first ascent in a stunning and remote corner of the Alaskan wilderness and is the world’s first 4k mountain film.

Jen Randel movie is an inspiring and charming archive account of Britain’s first female mountain guide, the amazing Gwen Moffat, now 92.

The short Wild Atlantic is a montage of all things climbing on the west coast of Ireland by climbing photographer Craig Hiller.
The Brit Rock film tour is the first home-grown adventure tour to emerge from the vibrant UK film-making industry.

The tour will also visit Keswick, Bristol and Clitheroe, and will also feature in November’s Kendal Mountain Festival.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team carries out searches and rescues on the hills and moors of the South Pennines and surrounding areas. Tickets for the Hebden bridge event can be bought online.
