5Point Adventure Film Festival

Like most of the rest of the arts world, the 5Point Film Festival goes virtual this year. Starting next Wednesday and running through next weekend, this signature Carbondale event brings a wealth of short films to us online. Here, on KDNK's Express Yourself, two local filmmakers with films in the festival, Oliver Sutro and Michael CB Stevens, describe their films.

Every year 5Point Adventure Film Festival’s Dream Project awards $1500 scholarships to students from Aspen to Parachute, encouraging them to explore personal boundaries and pursue their dreams. 2020 marks the 11th year of the project. KDNK’s Lucas Turner spoke to Dream Project director Tracy Wilson and a few of this year’s scholarship recipients to learn more.

5Point Adventure Film Festival was set to premier around Earth Day 2020 but, like countless other events, this was rescheduled due to the global pandemic. The 2020 flagship festival will now occur from October 14 - 18 and the team has curated a special virtual screening of archived favorites for next week instead. Executive Director Regna Jones shares details about 5Point Unlocked.
