5Point Film produces a 4-day Flagship Festival in Carbondale, CO at the end of each April. This 4-day event is full of short-documentary inspiring adventure film programs, produced concert style with surprise guests, performances and art. This isn’t your typical film festival or adventure film experience. It is electric, moving, and will challenge your definition of adventure. On average over 50 films and over 30 guests from around the world attend and the event is an inclusive gathering of our outdoor and creative community. In addition to the film programs, the Flagship event includes a live recording of the Dirtbag Diaries Podcast, the Enormocast, panel discussions, book signings, live art demonstrations, and always something new.
After the Flagship event, 5Point hits the road and works with event producers around the country to bring 5Point to their communities with a 1-night taste of the Flagship event. If you are interested in bringing 5Point to your community with our On the Road show, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5Point Film Festival has launched regional Festivals in Somerville, MA, Asheville, NC (2015), Bellingham, WA (2015), and Minneapolis, MN (2016) in an effort to connect our outdoor community and inspire adventure of all kinds.
5Point Film is on a mission to inspire adventure of all kinds, to connect generations through shared experience, to engage passion with a conscience, and to educate through film.
5Point Film directly gives back to and inspires high school students through our Dream Project scholarship program. This program offers five outstanding students the chance to explore their personal boundaries and dreams. The winning students best exemplify 5Point Film’s five guiding principles and will receive a $1,500 scholarship to embark on a life-changing opportunity, give back to a community, and follow their passions.
The 5Point Film Fund supports emerging filmmakers and thoughtful adventure stories through small monetary grants and a network support. Over the last 4-years, 5Point has supported over 10 film projects, many of which have gone on to win awards, and tour in festivals and theaters all over the world. 5Point connects artists and filmmakers with opportunities to showcase their work, with Outdoor Industry funding, and to a network of creatives to form meaningful collaborations. We believe this kind of support is essential in finding, telling and sharing inspiring stories.
We are all ambassadors of the environment. 5Point Films inspire us to explore wild places and to return with a renewed vigor for our passions and to move consciously through the natural world. 5Point Film, a 501(c)3 non-profit, benefits from donations as a 1% for the Planet partner and operates a zero waste event.
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 5Point Film celebrates and shares with the community and filmmakers that gather for its annual Festival in Carbondale and other events throughout the year.
Our 5 Points
5Point Film is built on five guiding principles: respect, commitment, humility, purpose and balance. We believe these same principles also 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.
