The wild world of winter outdoor adventure will be on full display today with the 5 Point Film Festival’s Snow Sports Reel. Hosted by the Colorado Snowsports Museum, the event hopes to present the fresh and exciting to audiences young and old.
From 5-7:30 p.m., guests will be able to experience nonstop winter adventures from around the globe with this collection of internationally acclaimed short films.
The 11-film Snow Reel features short films from four different nations, including Australia, Greenland, Iraq and the United States. The films capture how-did-they-do-that footage from the first mountain bike descent into Corbet’s Couloir in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a backcountry run that starts with a 10-20 foot drop from a cliff. Guests will also see French professional skier Candide Thovex’s quest to ski some of the world’s epic locations, despite the fact that none of them have snow.
The parent 5 Point Film Festival was founded by former Climbing Magazine owner Julie Kennedy in 2007. The festival offers the audience a taste of adventures through the lens with a compelling collection of more than 50 short films, panel discussions, community events, parties and more. This year’s 5 Point Film Festival is April 22-26 in Carbondale, Colorado.
A suggested donation of $5-$10 is suggested for the event, with beer, wine and snacks available for purchase. Museum members may reserve seats by emailing museum@snowsportsmuseum or by calling 970-476-1876. The museum has scheduled a second screening of the films on March 11, 2020.
