5Point Film Festival Keeps The Inspiration Coming
5Point Film releases its program for the 6th annual festival occurring April 25th-28th.
|| Carbondale, Colo. (April 1st, 2013) Releasing their 2013 program, the 5Point Film Festival is poised to provide another unique and powerful four days of inspirational adventure stories. Staying true to its original format, 5Point presents all programs in one highly charged venue, creating an eye-opening experience for all attendees, from filmmakers and athletes to the average audience member. “5Point’s unique single venue format means that the filmmakers and audience share a single experience, together, throughout the festival. We all see the same films, in the same place, at the same time, and the result is like no other festival of its kind…It is, by a wide margin, my favorite outdoor film festival: the only one I won’t miss.”
– Anson Fogel – Award Winning Filmmaker. Partner, Camp4 Collective.
| There are few barriers between the outdoor industry’s most inspiring and passionate personalities and the attending audience. This encourages conversation and allows the audience to get up close and personal with the special guests. This year some of the special guests include:
Kyle Dempster: Premier climber, explorer, and multiple Piolet d’Or award winner.
Kevin Pearce: Professional snowboarder and star of “The Crash Reel”
Renan Ozturk: Climber, artist, filmmaker, and a 2013 Nat. Geo. Adventurer of the Year
