Point Your Toes and Come To 5Point Film Festival

5Point

An amazing array of films, special guests and live performances. 5Point Film Festival is a hit.


How many of us are lucky enough to have a friend who throws the ultimate party? Whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert, to be connected in a circle of love is as special as opening a wrapped box to find the gift you’ve been longing for. This weekend you don’t need to be a member of the elite to get through the door. Just come to Carbondale here in Colorado for the 5Point Film Festival. Whether you attend one of the free events during the day, or buy a ticket for an evening show, you will be transformed. The stories, conversations, world-class films, and sense of community will motivate you to get out and find your passion.

For 76 year old Margot, the magic happens when she points her toes. Margo takes care of her husband stricken with dementia and struggles to walk because of her long battle with MS. Living in a southern California retirement village, she finds purpose when she puts on a nose clip and gets in a pool. She is a member of the Aquadettes, a group of elderly ladies who synchronize swim. Instead of an epic about crossing oceans to explore the unknown, here is a story about someone who could be living down the street. This film reminds us that purpose, one of the guiding principles at 5Point, fills a life with meaning — no matter what your age or physical condition.

5Point also delivers thrilling tales about navigating icy seas, climbing the untouched, exploring the unknown. All celebrate the indomitable human spirit.

Saturday’s events start at 11:00 a.m. with a family program, gratis for all kids. Enjoy free ice cream from Boulder Organic at noon, watch a film about Jane Goodall, or talk to Rich Rudow who filmed “The Last of the Great Unknown,” a story about secret features of the Grand Canyon. Sunday’s program starts at 3:00. With a mix of films, performances and guests as diverse as greeting cards on a store rack, something will grab you. Hope to see you there.
