5Point Film Festival

What’s harder, kayaking off a cliff…or fighting cancer?

There’s no personally transformative gift than giving sight to a blind person.

This is inspiring, the kind of post that makes me grateful for my crazy, stressful responsibility as the sole-surviving full-time employee of elephant…what a job this is that I’m emailed about Festivals like this, and get to share the good word. Check it out, and please spread it to friends, it only has 44 views on youtube, every time you watch the below the Good News gets a little further out there.

The 2nd Annual 5Point Film Festival presents a panel discussion on “Celebrating Our Common Spirit: Turing Desire Into Mission,” featuring a group of people who have taken their passions for outdoor pursuits and turned it into an avenue of helping others. Panelists include pro kayaker Brad Ludden who started First Descents, a camp for young adults with cancer; Mark Godley, the Executive Director of Denver-based Big City Mountaineers; renowned climber Conrad Anker and his wife Jenni Lowe-Anker, founders of the Khumba Climbing School in Nepal.

The 5Point Film Festival is an outdoor forum, inspiring adventure and creating conversation in Carbondale, Colorado on May 7-10th. www.5PointFilm.org
