Think of Reel Rock 10 as the local climbing community’s answer to the Austin Film Festival.

The traveling show features premieres of short films about the best climbing action of the year, and it’s stopping in Austin. Catch it at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza, 13187 Fitzhugh Road.

The local showing is part of a tour that takes Reel Rock 10 to more than 250 locations around the world.

This year’s films – “A Line Across the Sky,” “Dawn Wall,” “Showdown at Horseshoe Hell,” and “High and Mighty” – tell stories about climbers Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, Alex Honnold and Daniel Woods. A tribute to the late Dean Potter is also part of the lineup.

Tickets are $10 online here.

Upslope Brewing Company is a local sponsor.
