5Point Film Festival Announces Film Award Winners

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | May 16, 2008      

After a spectacular weekend of film screenings at the 5Point Film Festival, the film jury announces the results of the film awards:

Best Action Film King Lines by Peter Mortimer & Josh Lowell

Best Inspiring Adventure Got No Friends on a Powder Day by Nicolas Falquet & Loris Falquet

Best Cinematography Seasons by The Collective

Best of Festival Patagonia Winter by Alastair Lee

People’s Choice – King Lines

Runner UP: Endless Knot

Jury Award (no prize) The Grasshopper/Mountain Town by Brendan Keirnan & Frank Pickell

The jury members were Dede Binkman (coordinator), Scott Ransom, Greg Poschman, Edgar Boyles, Bob Perlmutter and John Catto. Jury members were selected based on their film and adventure background. Filmmakers will receive a $200 gift certificate from Black Diamond and a $600 gift certificate from Patagonia.

Based on conversations with various individuals involved in the festival, we’d also like to suggest another award, which could be called the “5 Points Award” based on the five points of focus the festival is named after: respect, commitment, humility, purpose and balance. We’d easily give that award to the avalanche movie “Dozen More Turns,” and WildSnow honorable mention of course goes to Ski The Fourteeners.

Judging from this year’s attendance and enthusiasm, It appeared to us that a mountain film festival with this sort of focus is very welcome. Thus, our hope is that the 5Point Film Festival will continue year-to-year, and place even more emphasis on films that go beyond mere adrenaline and delve into the human condition.
