The Calder Valley Search Rescue Team (CVSRT) will host the world premiere of a new epic mountain film ‘Citadel’.

The screening of the Alastair Lee film at Hebden Bridge Picture House will take place on October 8 and is part of the Brit Rock Film Tour 2015.

This follows the incredible success of last years capacity sell-out screening of the Brit Rock Film Tour which CVSRT also hosted with oroceeds raised from the evening donated to CVSRT.

Tim Ingram, CVSRT Media Secretary said: “Following the success of last years event, Alastair Lee couldn’t resist the charm of Hebden Bridge, so contacted the team to ask if we would be interested in hosting the premiere of the 2015 tour. Since he asked so nicely, how could we refuse?”

“CVSRT are extremely honoured to be asked to launch this years tour and we are all looking forward to hosting yet another adrenaline-fuelled fundraising evening with liberal splashes of the inimitable British spirit.

“This is a great opportunity for the team to raise essential funds but also perfect timing to mention our forthcoming year of celebrations to mark the teams 50th Anniversary which begins in February 2016.”

The focus of this years Brit Rock Film Tour is on the film-makers native subject matter - ‘mountains’. The tour will feature three home-grown adventure films with the main feature being the the world premiere of ‘Citadel’ which features the UK’s Pro Alpinists Matt Helliker and Jon Bracey as they embark on a first ascent in a stunning and remote corner of the Alaskan wilderness and is the world’s first 4k mountain film.

The evening will include a Q&A session with Alastair Lee and Matt Helliker, a surprise guest comedy featurette and a fundraising raffle with some amazing prizes. The Brit Rock Film Tour is the first home-grown adventure tour to emerge from the vibrant UK film making industry.
