2015 FESTIVAL DETAILS

Join in on this two day celebration of art, community and short adventure films. This is the best (and only) “film concert” experience including special guests, live performance, and a few surprises 5Point style.

Daytime events will include free community parties leading into 2 evenings of unique short adventure film programs at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.  Each film program will begin at 7pm and last about 3 hours.  Coming to a 5Point Film Program is a unique experience, more like a live arts event or a concert than a typical film event.  We don’t want to give it all away here, but if you enjoy the element of surprise, live performance, and an emotional ride through inspiring film and performance… than this is for you!

VENUE: Thomas Wolfe Auditorium

DATES: August 14 & 15, 2015
