5Point Adventure Film Festival is dedicated to sharing stories of adventure that have the power to ignite positive social and environmental change in our local communities and around the globe. Our five founding principles - respect, commitment, humility, purpose, and balance - guide our curation process and festival experience.

As we look to the future and reevaluate what adventure means and how to make it more accessible, we’re searching for diverse stories and storytellers that help expand our understanding of our collective connection to the outdoors. Our goal is to go beyond one-dimensional ideas of adventure and instead celebrate the unique ways our lives are all shaped and enhanced by the natural world around us.

    Pile a crap ton of fired up people into one room in front of a gigantic screen, turn it up loud AF until they get goosebumps, ugly cry, cry laughing and start looking forward to next year's festival before this one is even over. What more can you ask for as an audience member or a filmmaker?
