Sunday’s film program will incorporate a celebration of the National Park Service Centennial with a special Grand Canyon-centric program featuring special guests, film and performances, including local adventure filmmaker Pete McBride and Flagstaff adventure filmmaker Q Martin.
“Every year we aim to evolve and bring more depth to 5Point’s signature event,” said Sarah Wood, executive director of 5Point Film. “We are proud of this year’s film lineup. We have more world premieres than ever before, and that’s one indication of the community we’re cultivating here. We’ll continue to support filmmakers and artists through our Film Fund while connecting them to our outdoor industry network.”
“We are also focused on inspiring young adventurers through our Dream Project teen scholarship program. Without great stories and filmmakers to tell them, we wouldn’t be here.”
