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.
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.
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.
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.
