Tommy is one of the world’s greatest athletes, best known for the odds-defying feat of free-climbing the 3,000-foot Dawn Wall on El Capitan. But his memoir is much more than a story about tackling Mother Nature. It’s a tale of adventure and adversity, of love and family and fatherhood, and of navigating whatever challenges life throws at you—even if it’s a giant shard of ice hurtling down a cliff at your head.
Tommy partners closely with the Access Fund, the national advocacy organization that protects America’s climbing. They buy and conserve land; advocate for climbers with land management agencies and officials at the national, state and local level; field professional trail building teams; support over 100 local climbing organizations, and educate the climbing community on best practices for minimizing impacts. Brady Robinson is a climber and has been the executive director of the Access Fund since 2007, and will introduce Tommy.
Kitbull, directed by Rosana Sullivan and produced by Kathryn Hendrickson, reveals an unlikely connection that sparks between two creatures: a fiercely independent stray kitten and a pit bull. Together, they experience friendship for the first time.

Tim Urban knows that procrastination doesn’t make sense, but he’s never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window — and encourages us to think harder about what we’re really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.
