This year’s 5Point Film Festival honors inspired adventurers who have turned their own individual desire into a determined mission to help others, according to event organizers.
“5Point explores the passions behind this elemental shift away from oneself toward the greater human community: Being human, we yearn to be part of something bigger,” according to an event press release. “We manifest that fundamental longing by seeking ever-higher peaks, ever-greater distances to conquer.
“Yet, in focusing solely on these physical and mental challenges, we overlook the wilderness inside ourselves, our spiritual connection to the world ” and each other ” realized on a much deeper level.”
Event founder Julie Kennedy explained the core intention of the festival.
“Our vision this year and every year is to provide a forum where filmmakers, innovators and members of the community at large can gather together, share their films and ideas, build relationships and come away transformed by the experience,” she said. “It is a brief moment in time when the right people come together in the right place, supported by the right creative stimulation to make real change.
