On the edge between desire and fear, between the known and unknown, is a place deep inside us all where the spirit is transformed — pushed beyond its limit by our deliberate commitment to usher in something new and original. In this soulful place we are catalyzed to learn, expand and engender newfound understanding to inspire others on their journeys. It is this spirit, this thirst for adventure that the 5Point Film Festival celebrates and shares with the community and filmmakers that gather for its annual festival in Carbondale.
5Point has made it a priority to bring together adventurers, filmmakers and sponsors that believe in a common vision: respect, commitment, humility, purpose and balance — the five guiding principles of the festival. These same principles form the foundation for individuals who lead lives of adventure and connect all of us who share an elemental passion to explore and expand our boundaries. The festival is made possible by partnering in a meaningful way with companies like Osprey Packs, a brand that believes in more than just creating a high-quality product, but also in connecting people to wilderness and adventure, and fighting to protect these places and this culture for present and future generations.
The 5Point Film Festival is on a mission to inspire adventure of all kinds, to connect generations through shared experience and respect, to engage passion with a conscience, and to educate through film.
We are all ambassadors of the environment. The 5Point Film Festival inspires us to explore wild places and to return with a renewed vigor to protect our natural world. Proceeds from the 5Point Film Festival, a 501(c)3 non-profit, benefit 1% for the Planet and other non-profits throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond.
