Sometimes even I’m surprised at the names that pop up in the From: field in my email inbox. This morning was one of those times.

Abbey Smith is an accomplished climber and writer (how much of an understatement can I possibly make?), and she’s getting the word out about the REEL ROCK Film Tour.

OK… I can’t wait to see what you creative folks put together. Maybe I’ll even fire up my little Canon this weekend…

From the REEL ROCK press release:

The 2009 REEL ROCK Film Tour (, presented by Sender Films and Big UP Productions is now accepting submissions for the 2009 REEL ROCK FILMMAKING COMPETITION. If you have a camera, computer, and a fresh idea, one of the short REEL ROCK ‘09 films could be yours!

Building on the popularity of the 2008 filmmaking competition — in which tens of thousands of people voted for their favorite Humor/Spoof and Action/Adventure films — the 2009 competition has expanded with new rules and new prizes.

Winning filmmakers will receive $500 in cash and rake in grand prize packages from title sponsors Windstopper and The North Face, gear sponsors Petzl Equipment and Sterling Ropes, and media sponsors Climbing Magazine and Urban Climber. The winning films, one from each genre category — as chosen by voters online and REEL ROCK judges — will be featured on the 2009 REEL ROCK Film Tour in over 100 locations worldwide.

Submission deadline is July 20, 2009.
