Odyssey Release: Premiere at The Works

We are very pleased to announce that on November 10th we will be premiering our new film 'Odyssey' at The Climbing Works in Sheffield.

We've teamed up with The North Face to bring you a premiere with a difference, and starting at the same time as we show the film at The Climbing Works, we will release Odyssey online to stream for free for 10 days. During this time the DVD and download price of the film will be reduced.

‘Odyssey’ - Our 10th film (directed by Dom Bush) - is an epic two-week road trip with four of the world’s best climbers tackling some of the best areas of traditional rock climbing in the UK.  James Pearson, Hazel Findlay, Hansj√∂rg Auer (Austria), Caroline Ciavaldini (France) and the four man camera team visited the Lakes, Pembrokeshire, Shropshire, Northumberland and North Wales.

We normally take the traditional route of premiering at a film festival, followed by the release of DVDs and downloads. This time round however, we wanted to do something different, and we hope that by releasing the film in this way  thousands of people will be able to enjoy it completely free of charge. We're hoping that people enjoy the film so much, that they will then purchase a copy of the film at the reduced price (available only during the 10 day period). 

During this time we will also be revealing exclusive offers on other Hot Aches titles.

We are very pleased to be working with Heason Events & The Climbing Works once again. Matt Heason from Heason Events said:  “A few years ago we held a multi-screen, simultaneous screening of ‘Committed 2’ at the Climbing Works which was a big success so it’s exciting to be working with Hot Aches again on pushing the boundaries of film distribution.”

Michele Scarano, Head of Digital & Social Media, The North Face (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) said:  "Since climbing is in our roots, we feel that authentic content is key to engage with the community from pro to enthusiast. We understand that followers and fans are hungry to know more about our athletes and their incredible feats through online platforms, as we've just seen with our live reporting from The North Face Kalymnos Climbing Festival."

James, Caroline, Paul and Dom will be at the screening to give the audience a flavour of what it’s like both on cutting edge climbs in front of and behind the camera on an epic climbing trip.

The Climbing Works will be showing an exclusive extract from Odyssey at the interval of the Reel Rock tour screening on Saturday October 7th.

Tickets to the premiere on the 10th November are on sale for £5 (£4
