5Point action spills into Fourth Street Plaza
The Aspen Times
Did you sleep on getting 5Point Film Festival tickets again and miss out on the now sold-out Friday and Saturday night programs in Carbondale? Wondering how to get your 5Point fix without a ticket? Or are you a passholder looking for more beyond the slate of inspirational and outdoor adventure films?
Make your way to The Confluence, a new (and free) weekend-long gathering of the 5Point tribes with speakers, live music, activities, demos and beer. It’s taking over the Fourth Street Plaza in Carbondale Friday through Sunday.
Confluence events include podcast tapings of “The Enormocast” and “POV” on Friday, “Semi-Rad Stories” and “The Dirtbag Diaries” on Saturday, and “She Explores” and “Economics of Soul” on Sunday, bringing back familiar 5Point faces like Chris Kalous and Fitz Cahall with the usual array of extraordinary guests and inspiring conversation.
The new festival hub also hosts a beer garden and, of course, open bluegrass jams along with street games and live bands.
Inside the adjacent Launchpad Gallery, 5Point is hosting a free art show featuring work inspired by public lands with photography by Carl Zoch and Amy Martin, ceramics by Kelsey Brasseur, acrylic paintings by Kelly Peters and watercolors by Sarah Uhl and Jeremy Collins.
Tickets are still available to some festival events at 5pointfilm.org.
