We're bringing a Festival premiere to you.

Sunday, January 26, 2020, we’re simulcasting the Festival premiere of The Climb to ten theaters around the U.S. Join us for the filmmakers’ intro, film screening, and Q&A with cast and crew, all alongside the Park City audience. The Climb, an official 2020 Sundance Film Festival selection, also won the Coup de Coeur prize at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Kyle and Mike are best friends who share a close bond—until Mike sleeps with Kyle’s fiancée. The Climb is about a tumultuous but enduring relationship between two men across many years of laughter, heartbreak, and rage. It is also the story of two real-life best friends—director Michael Angelo Covino and co-writer Kyle Marvin—who turn their profound connection into a rich, humane, and frequently uproarious film about the boundaries (or lack thereof) in all close friendships.
