5Point Film Festival announces two-day celebration at Thomas Wolfe

July 15, 2015

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.
