The Tahoe Adventure Film Festival (TAFF) is like no other film festival in the world. This fun high-energy evening will fuel your passion for action, and ignite your senses for adventure.

Filmmakers capture the power and intensity of skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, rock climbing, surfing, mountain biking, BASE jumping and other heart-pounding sports that feed our addiction to adventure.

Many of the segments are special edits including previews of films that have not been released. Todd Offenbacher, TAFF founder and host of Outside Television, is part of this elite group of daredevils. The festival is an extension of Todd’s passionate nature and life of adventure full of challenges that helps him excel in all areas of life with greater clarity. “I’ve traveled the globe to ski, climb, and explore where I’ve met so many likeminded people living the same dream,” says Offenbacher. “This festival comes from my heart and soul, and represents the collective passion and lessons learned to inspire everyone to pursue their dreams with gusto.”

A raffle to raise money for the Teton County Search and Rescue will take place during intermission.
