5Point Fest Shows ‘Best Outdoors Films’

You may have heard of the 5Point Film Festival. The celebration of outdoors-themed cinema in Carbondale, Colo., runs through this weekend. The trailer below — a mash-up of some of the films to be shown — is inspiring and has a little something for everyone.

From the organizers: “From April 24 – 27, 2014, the 5Point Film Festival will take you inside yourself, on a ride you will never forget, and leave you inspired for adventure; however you choose to define it.”

With a mission to “inspire adventure of all kinds, to connect generations through shared experience, to engage passion with a conscience, and to educate through film,” the festival features films dedicated to the sea, mountains, exploration, plus athletes, media personalities, and contests.
