5 Point Film Festival: May 8-10th

The email inbox this morning held an interesting invitation to the 5 Point Film Festival to be held in Carbondale, Colorado May 8th - 10th. The outdoor adventure film fest is sponsored by Patagonia and Beattie Outdoor Productions.
It features a five-star roster of adventure films, special guests and panel discussions. Featured guests and speakers include Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, surfer Gerry Lopez, blind mountaineer Erik Weihenmayer, and climber Tommy Caldwell. Films incorporate all realms of adventure: fly fishing, mountain biking, climbing, surfing, base jumping, mountaineering and kayaking, just to list a few.

Included in the movies is Destinations. It is an action packed fly fishing short film that features the stories of three different groups of anglers from different parts of the world. The film begins in Slovenia, transitions to the remote Alaskan wilderness, and then concludes with fishing for False Albacore in North Carolina. Additionally, Kate and Mark Rutherford will be at the festival and will be part of a discussion panel: Inspiring Passion & Lifestyle with Your Children.
Right now it doesn't look like we will get to attend but should you make it to the show drop us a note to let us know how you liked it.
