The 5PT Film Festival focuses on the outdoor industry’s inspirational stories and is dedicated to bringing communities together. Sierra Nevada is pleased to partner with 5Point Film in an exclusive debut showing of their inspiring outdoor films featuring the award winners from the renowned film festival in Carbondale, CO. This partnership brings the film series to Richmond for the fifth year in a row, and the stories of passionate athletes, artists, and filmmakers told during the festival will add to the excitement surrounding Dominion Energy Riverrock.

In addition to its support as presenting sponsor, Sierra Nevada is donating a portion of beer sales during the 5PT Film Festival to rvaMORE, a local nonprofit whose mission is to enhance trail experiences through people, tools, and advocacy. rvaMORE helps support advocacy efforts that protect access to local trails, provides over 1,000 hours of volunteer work to maintain and improve trails, and ensures continued access to local trails by educating local riders about the need to ride responsibly and obey local regulations. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. believes in sustainable enjoyment of the environment, and those values are reflected by local organizations like rvaMORE.
