5Point Film Festival stands for balance, commitment, humility, purpose and respect. We program 4-days of  inspiring programming, and gather special guests, athletes, filmmakers, and our community together in one – 800 seat venue. Please see the Festival Schedule for more detail.

Buy a pass. This will get you into everything and give you the most flexibility with your schedule and time. Unlike other traditional film festivals, we do not have multiple venues or screenings. When you buy into 5Point, you buy into everything…and won’t miss a thing. No stress, no FOMO (fear of missing out), no hassle. Plus, we leave you plenty of time to explore and enjoy our beautiful Roaring Fork Valley, on your own, or with one of our Participate programs (TBA). Rent a bike, hike around, or bring your skis, it is usually a great time of year to hit the trail or mountain. More on that below…

Each night we host a 2.5 to 3 hour program from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Pass and ticket holders must be in their seats 10 minutes before the program starts, or we will sell those empty seats to your neighbors waiting outside. All the films in the evening programs are carefully choreographed and filled with 12-15 short-documentary films. These programs include a few filmmakers, special guests, and surprise elements sprinkled in. Think of it more as an inspiring film concert! Questions? Drop us a line.


For more information regarding tickets and passes, please visit our tickets page. Passes on sale now, and individual tickets go on sale April 3. Buy early for the best prices and don’t wait. We typically sell out the week of the Festival.

There are several options when flying into the Roaring Fork Valley. Here are our suggestions.

ASPEN (ASE) – $$$ Aspen is the most convenient, 40 min from Carbondale, but is the most expensive option usually. Area RFTA bus services can bring you down Valley once you land.

GRAND JUNCTION (GJT) – $$ Grand Junction offers flights with United Airlines, Delta, American Airlines, US Airways, and Alaska Airlines. Be prepared to rent a car and drive another hour and a half to get to Carbondale though!

EAGLE/VAIL (EGE) – $$ Only 45 min from Carbondale, Eagle County Airport is a great option, offering flights with American Airlines and United Airlines. Colorado Mountain Express shuttle service also serves Carbondale to Eagle.

DENVER (DIA) – $ Denver is the least expensive (in most  cases) but be prepared to rent a car, or grab a shuttle. Once you land you still have 4 hours to go. Check out the Colorado Mountain Express shuttle schedules.

At an altitude of 6,181 feet, the Carbondale area is characterized by an average of 295 days of sunshine, low humidity, cold but mild winters and comfortable summers, but late April can often be more rainy and cloudy than usual. If the weather is bad, it’s that much better for films and if the weather is good, enjoy the outdoors!

Aside from the programs during the festival, Carbondale has lots to offer. Touted as one of the “Top 12 Towns” in the “50 Next Great Places to Live and Play” by National Geographic Adventure magazine, Carbondale is a great base camp for recreation enthusiasts. Resting in the magnificent shadow of 12,953-foot Mt. Sopris, there is plenty to do, including biking, hiking, gold medal fly-fishing, kayaking, and world class climbing.


Hike Looking to go for a hike? Well you don’t have to go far! Just a mile or so from downtown Carbondale, you will find Red Hill/Mushroom Rock. This can be a great trail run, an easy hike, or even a great nature walk. Any way you do it though, you will end up with a spectacular view of Carbondale and Mt. Sopris! Feel free to check out other hikes in the area, but beware of lingering snow! If you are looking for another run, hop on the bike path or head up to Dry Park. Visit Independence Run and Hike for more beta.
 biker  A cyclist’s heaven here in Carbondale. Road biking? Cruise towards Glenwood Springs and Glenwood Canyon on the Rio Grande Bike Path, or head the up valley toward Aspen. Either way, you will have a blast! If the snow is melted and the trails are dry, hop on a mountain bike! Closest, although steepest is Red Hill, but you can also explore Prince Creek up the road; check it out here! Visit Aloha Mountain Cyclery for more beta.
 Yoga Want to limber up, do your downward dogs, and properly prepare for a 5Point Film Festival program? Head on downtown to check out some yoga classes or perhaps at the Third Street Center . Visit True Nature Healing Arts to find your zen.
 climber Want more of the vertical variety? Then check out some of the world-class local climbing spots.
