A central part of our mission at 5Point is supporting the next generation of adventure filmmakers. Fortunately for us, our good friends at Stio feel the same way. Together, we’re thrilled to announce the return of the Adventure Filmmakers Pitch Event!
The event will give five filmmakers the opportunity to pitch their film ideas in front of a live audience at our 17th Annual Flagship Festival in Carbondale, Colorado (Saturday, April 27). Up to $15,000 will be awarded to one or multiple filmmakers to help kickstart their projects.
On Friday, March 8, 2024 five finalists will receive an invitation to pitch their film in person.
In order to be eligible for the award, the filmmaker must be able to attend the 5Point Flagship Festival in Carbondale for the pitch event on Saturday, April 27, 2024. Finalists are responsible for covering their travel but lodging will be provided by 5Point Film. Each finalist will receive an all-access pass and a Stio swag bag.
