Join us for the 5Point Film Festival! You will be inspired by compelling stories of personal triumph, dramatic landscapes of natural beauty, and powerful stories of people connecting across cultural dividing lines. You will glide down powdery slopes, swim through powerful currents and roll through old growth forests - all from the safety of your living room. 5Point inspires us to explore wild places and to return with a renewed vigor to protect our natural world. All donations will support Mountain True’s conservation work in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains
MountainTrue’s screening will include select films from the 2020 5Point Film Festival, many of which portray the overcoming of cultural clashes or other forms of adversity in the outdoors. In United States of Joe’s, dirtbag climbers descend on a community in rural Utah and learn to connect with locals after initial distrust. In Voice Above Water, a 90-year-old fisherman who can no longer fish because of plastic pollution in the ocean catches trash with his fishing net with the hopes of one day being able to fish again. In Pedal Through, a team of three Black women bikepackers take on a trip across the Three Sisters, Three Rivers route in Central Oregon, finding healing and self-growth along the way.
MountainTrue has chosen to make the film screening free of charge so that it is accessible to everyone. However, MountainTrue is paying for the films, and we encourage everyone who is able to make a contribution to do so as part of Giving Tuesday. We will also hold a raffle for the chance to win prizes from Yeti, Gregory, Stio, NRS and other 5Point sponsors. All donations and raffle ticket sales will support MountainTrue’s ongoing work to protect our region’s rivers, forests and mountains.
