5Point Adventure Film Festival brings best of the fest to Wheeler Opera House
The 5Point Adventure Film Festival will host a night of short-film screenings, talks and special guests at the Wheeler Opera House on Saturday.
The Aspen event brings upvalley the award-winners and festival favorites from the concert-style festival last month in Carbondale.
Highlights from local filmmakers will include screenings of “Ten Years Out,” a film by Meredith McKee, about how Summers Moore and her family coped the most tragic event through art and the outdoors; and “The Frenchy,” about octogenarian cyclist and skier legend Jacques Huout by Michelle Smith.
