On April 20th, we headed to Carbondale, CO for our first adventure film festival, 5Point. We talked to its founder, Julie Kennedy, and five creative women who find inspiration in its community. We learn about the trends in adventure filmmaking and the importance of seeking out the people and places that motivate you to create.
Featuring Julie Kennedy (Founder of 5Point), Anya Miller (Creative Strategist at Duct Tape Then Beer), Haley Thompson (co-director of the film How We Grow), Aisha Weinhold (founder of No Man’s Land Film Festival), Sonya Pevzner (blogger behind Pevzdispenser), and Sarah Uhl (artist and former event director for 5Point).
