Psycho Vertical - Winner of best Climbing film at Banff Moutain Film Festival 2017

Following Britain’s unlikeliest hero-mountaineer and funny-man, Andy Kirkpatrick on an 18 day solo ascent of El Capitan, Yosemite. Psycho Vertical is a raw and intimate portrait of one of climbing’s most interesting figures. Inspired by the best-selling autobiography of the same name, the film explores themes of identity, fatherhood, and how our pasts shape us.

“There were lots of great climbing films this year, making it was a really tough category to judge. However all the jury agreed that one film in this category stood out because of the honesty of the protagonist and its refreshing filmmaking style. In this era of social media, our feeds are full of professional athletes 'living the dream'. This film digs a lot deeper. The filmmaker successfully employs some unorthodox techniques and the filmmaking feels very fresh, at times even bordering on experiancental. It is a 'warts and all' profile that leaves an audience with a true rendering of a well-known climber and a film which transcends its category.”

— Paul Diffley, jury member, Banf Mountain Film Festival 2017

Bringing Psycho Vertical to London

This is a unique event, bringing the award-winning film Psycho Vertical to the two-hundred-year-old Royal Institution lecture theatre in central London. The event will also include the film's protagonist: Andy Kirkpatrick, talking about the book the film was based on, as well the making of the film, plus a Q&A. This is not an event to miss!

Where and when?

The show will be held at the Royal Institution which is close to tubes and train services and has a super cool lecture theatre, perhaps one of the most famous 'speaking' spaces in the UK, having been in use for over 200 years, and used for the BBC Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, founded by Michael Faraday.

If we hit our target the event will happen on the on 5th of February starting at 7 pm, and ending at 10 pm, so people can get home again on the tube.

Tickets and Pricing

Anyone who lives in London will know that doing a central London gig is incredibly costly and so the ticket price reflects this, and the aim is to make it more of a night out than doing it in a university lecture theatre. 

Be warned that tickets sold out at the last event Andy held at the Royal Institute in 2016.

Risks and challenges

I ran an event like this two years ago and it went really well, so I don't see any problems.
