5POINT ADVENTURE FILM FESTIVAL ASHEVILLE

2017 Dates TBD

Thomas Wolfe Auditorium

One of the best adventure film festivals in the country will be in Asheville, North Carolina, October 6-8, 2016, with a program of more than 50 short films and world premieres, panel discussions, community events, guest speakers, community picnics, parties and more.

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!

CHEERS!
