5Point Film Fest to open Riverrock

It’s Dominion Riverrock week here in Richmond, and the forecast looks promising. Sure, there’s a chance of some thunderstorms on Saturday, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out the riverfront spectacle of music and outdoor sports. It’s the biggest event of its kind in the country for a reason.

As in past years, Riverrock kicks off with a film festival the day before the music and races get cranked up. This year the 5Point Film Festival is coming to the Byrd Theatre on Thursday (May 14). I’ve been perusing the movie trailers, and it looks to be a fun one. The above is the festival trailer. That’ll give you a taste of everything available to moviegoers.

“These films will take you on a wild ride and leave you inspired to plan your next adventure,” said Jeff Fitch, of the Sports Backers. “Doors will open at 6 p.m., and the films begin at 6:30. Oh, and did I mention it’s free?”

Who doesn’t love free?
