A roller coaster is a good thing to ride once in a while. The wind whips through your hair, your heart beats in your throat and you gasp, letting out either an exuberant cheer or a terrified scream. Love it or hate it, the ride definitely makes you feel alive.
A carnival of thrills arrives near WildSnow.com HQ next weekend that is guaranteed to pick up your pulse. The 5Point Film Festival runs Thursday, April 24th thru Sunday, April 27th here in Carbondale, Colorado. As you grip your seat, 5Point takes you to all parts of the world, introduces you to incredible folks, and shares memorable tales of journeys far and near. Most importantly, the festival brings the outdoor community together to celebrate our common spirit.
Tickets sell out so buy yours well before showtime. Early bird pricing ends April 21st; get tickets here.
5Point’s specialty is the way they put together the program. Each evening is choreographed to offer a selection of crisply stunning films and intriguing special guests that light up the screen and every imagination. Breathtaking, poignant, humorous — the films take you up, down and sideways (yes, you will see backcountry skiing — of rather broad variety). At the end of the evening you’ll say, “Yeah! That was a good ride.”
This is 5Point’s seventh year. I’ve attended each festival and have always come away more inspired to live life fully, embrace the ones I love, make good times happen and cherish them. But enough of my gushing. Here are a few movie previews to coax you to come see the stunners on a big screen with gut busting sound system and all sorts of interesting people — for an experience quite unlike simply viewing the films at home or in a regular theater venue.:
