Well known as a breeding ground for elite athletes and year-round adventurers, Lake Tahoe is the stage for the Tahoe Adventure Film Festival to be held December 11, 2015 in South Shore at MontBleu. The pre-party starts at 6:30pm.
Designed to capture the intensity and passion of adventure and Tahoe mountain culture, the Tahoe Adventure Film Festival showcases breathtaking video footage of adventure thrill seekers as they ski, bike, jump, climb and surf the world.
See you there!
Festival organizers spend months pouring over footage from every corner of the globe to narrow down the film submissions to the top 10. Films cover the full spectrum of adventure by the action sports world’s best talent including skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, rock climbing, surfing, skating, mountain biking, BASE jumping and other heart pounding sports.
The high-energy films are amplified by live acts including special guest speakers, action sports photography by Aurora Photos, go-go dancers, DJs, and always a few special surprises to keep the audience entertained.
“The festival’s fast pace and action-packed films keep us on edge; that fine line that defines world-class athletes and fuels our passion for adventure at any level,” says Todd Offenbacher, TAFF founder and event host, world adventurer and popular TV host for Outside Television. “We put together a line-up of the best films of the year and showcase them in one night of energy, excitement and fun that appeal to all audiences.”
A highlight of the festival is the Golden Camalot Award which recognizes one athlete or filmmaker for their athletic prowess, achievements, and leadership role in action and adventure sports. Past TAFF Camalot recipients include photographer/adventurer Cory Rich, climber Steve Wampler, snowboard pioneer Jeremy Jones, 22-year-old free climber Alex Honnold, 86-year-old mountaineer Fred Beckey, extreme skier Glen Plake, world-class rock climber Tommy Caldwell, and legendary climber/kayaker Royal Robbins.
