FITS® Announces 5Point Film Festival Sponsorship


Niota, TN (April 7, 2014)—Inspiration has always been easy to find at the 5Point Film Festival, but now incredibly good fitting socks will also be plentifully available. FITS, an innovative and ergonomically-focused sock brand manufactured by Crescent Sock Company, is proud to announce the company’s sponsorship of the iconic 5Point Film Festival and weekend revelry.

FITS is proud to support 5Point Film’s mission, “To inspire adventure of all kinds, to connect generations through shared experience and respect, to engage passion with a conscience, and to educate through film.” However, the weekend doesn’t stop at inspirational filmmaking alone; FITS will also be present at one of many Participate events encouraging festivalgoers to explore the local Carbondale, CO community. For those needing to stretch their legs, local specialty retailer Independence Run & Hike will be guiding a group trail run Saturday morning, April 26th. Anyone is welcome to join and complimentary FITS socks will be on hand for participants (as supplies last).

Sarah Wood, Executive Director for 5Point Film Festival commented about the FITS sponsorship: “After trying out my first FITS sock this year, I was sold. I just knew our audience would appreciate this brand and its product. It is great to bring FITS into the 5Point Family and continue to build community, and connect our audience with the outdoors.”

Crescent is a 112-year-old of family-owned American manufacturing business located in the foothills of Tennessee’s Smokey Mountains. FITS are the ultimate product of over a century of experience producing high-quality socks for many of the world’s foremost brands. The FITS difference is quickly noticeable upon trying on a pair, but is also evident in the company’s four US Patents, the pursuit of the world’s best textiles, and in the people who take an unbelievable amount of pride in delivering the perfect knit sock.
