Dear Friends and Family of 5Point,
The 5Point Board of Directors voted to make the difficult decision to postpone our Flagship Festival, scheduled for October 13 – 17, 2021 until April 2022. This difficult decision was based on the ever-shifting conditions around in-person, indoor gatherings while COVID-19 conditions are changing and communities are still at risk.
Our team has continued to work diligently and with passion to bring an in-person film festival program to Carbondale in a way that reflects our spirit and brings our community together in one auditorium celebrating adventure and the essence of 5Point. The decision-making process reflects the guiding principles of this organization, and while this is humbling, we need to put the 5Point and wider Carbondale community’s health and safety as our priority.
Over the past 18 months, 5Point has shown courage, resilience, and creativity to continue to fulfill our mission and purpose which is to inspire people to live lives of adventure according to our five core principles — Purpose, Respect, Commitment, Humility, and Balance. We are committed to our focus to continually show up for our community in this way, and find new ways to bring the 5Point style of adventure storytelling through our education and filmmaker development resources. 5Point has become bigger than just one festival event, and we are proud of the impact and reach of our nonprofit organization.
Future announcements will be coming when dates and format are confirmed for rescheduling the Festival for April 2022. Thank you for standing by us while we navigate this together.
With humility and gratitude,
Regna and the 5Point Board and Team
