5Point Film Festival is proud to announce the launch of its inaugural "concert style," outdoor, documentary short film and recreation Festival August 14 + 15 at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium!
Join in on this two-day celebration of art, outdoor community and short adventure films.
Daytime events include free community parties leading into 2 evenings of 10-16 short adventure films each night at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. Each film program will begin at 7pm and lasts 3 hours. Coming to a 5Point Film Program is a unique experience, more like a film 'concert' than a typical film event.
