Sender Films has announced that The Dawn Wall movie will premiere at the South by Southwest Festival this year. There will be a full theatrical release later in the season.

Directored by Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer, the film summary reads: “Legendary free climber Tommy Caldwell tries to get over heartbreak by scaling 1,000 metres of an impossible rock face: the Dawn Wall of El Capitan.”

On Facebook, Sender announced, “Big news: we are thrilled to announce that our new feature length documentary, The Dawn Wall, will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March.

It’s an understatement to say we are incredibly excited and honored to get this film out into the world. Full theatrical release is slated for later in 2018. Thanks and gratitude to Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson and Red Bull Media House Films for making the movie possible. Next stop: SXSW!”
