Carbondale’s 5Point Film Festival — built on the five principles of respect, humility, commitment, purpose, and balance — returns for it’s fifth year Thursday, April 26 through Sunday, April 29.
“The depth of storytelling at this year’s festival is phenomenal - the audience is in for quite a ride,” says Justin Clifton, 5Point executive director. “From the desert floor of the Grand Canyon to the heights of Saser Kangri II to the remote waters in the heart of Africa to the untold stories of human passion, 5Point is offering up an amazing collection of films in 2012.”
This year, 5Point is proud to welcome Piolets d’Or-nominated climbers Renan Ozturk, Jimmy Chin, and Hayden Kennedy; paddlers and National Geographic Adventurers of the Year Erik Boomer and Jon Turk; and skateboard legend Tony Alva to the festival.
All events will take place at the Carbondale Recreation Center and other local hot spots. The complete festival program and information about tickets can be found at www.5pointfilm.org .
