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.
5Point takes place each spring in Carbondale, Colorado. The festival brings 4-days of outdoor films, art, conversations and performances. Unlike other traditional film festivals, we do not have multiple venues or screenings. Everyone watches together, bonded in a shared emotional experience. We work to curate a weekend that embodies out five guiding principles—respect, commitment, humility, purpose and balance—and reminds us that when we change, the whole world changes.
5Point offers a weekend packed with over 60 adventure films, live podcasts, art, conversations, performances and so much more.
Forest Woodward’s pursuit of new experience pushes him to continually evolve his vision, while reminding him of the importance of carrying his camera with humor, compassion and curiosity. He seeks out stories with soul, eyes that twinkle with the allure of adventure; he strives to share these stories through a clear and honest lens.
