Adventure Filmmakers Pitch Event


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 16th Annual Flagship Festival in Carbondale, Colorado (Saturday, April 22). The filmmaker with the winning pitch will receive $15,000 to kickstart their project and help make their vision a reality.

On Monday, March 6, 2023 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 22, 2023. Finalists are responsible for covering their travel and lodging expenses. Each finalist will receive an all-access pass and a Stio swag bag.

The Pitch Event:
