2012 5Point Film Festival

It’s hard to believe, but this year’s 5Point Film Festival is less than three weeks away! If you’ve been to one in the past, you already know what an incredible event it is. If you haven’t been, let me just say it could be one of the most inspiring weekends of the year.

The organizers spend hours upon hours agonizing over their selections, and the finished product has consistently been a showcase of the most incredible films I’ve ever seen. Far from the typical high action, low story stuff that seems to have defined the medium, these are films that will make you laugh and cry, make you ponder your life, your place in the world, and how you can use your talents to make it a better place. Every year I’ve been blown away, and this year’s lineup looks stellar.

And of course you get to hang out with an incredible crew of people, from all over the world. This year’s special guests include alpinists Jimmy Chin, Renan Oztyurk and Hayden Kennedy, polar explorers Erik Boomer and Jon Turk, and original Z-Boy and skating legend Tony Alva. Add to that a whole slew of filmmakers and you’ve got one of the most incredible gatherings in the outdoor industry. Throw in a bunch of social events before and after the event, along with endless local recreation opportunities, and you’ve got a weekend to remember!

Hope to see you all there!
