Catch the year’s best action sports films when climber and TV personality Todd Offenbacher presents the Tahoe Adventure Film Festival in Mammoth tonight and Saturday. Now in its 9th year, this is the first time that the Tahoe Film Festival has come to Mammoth. Sellout crowds are expected at tonight's 7pm showing at Edison Theatre. The Film Festival will also show at Edison Theatre on Saturday at 7pm.
To create the heavy-hitting Festival lineup, producers selected the eight most thrilling action sports films out of a huge pool of submissions. Each filmmaker then produced five to twenty minute segments, which are edited together for an unforgettable evening.
This year’s outstanding Festival footage includes wingsuit BASE jumping, big mountain snowboarding, El Cap climbing, speed alpine ascents, steep first descents and huge crashes. Film segments hail from Teton Gravity Research, Red Bull, Standard Films, Shreddy Times, Sender Films, Trans Global, Fly Zone and Hi Tec’s newest films.
$10 general admission tickets are available in advance by calling 760.934.6592. Tickets are $10 at the door based on availability.
Edison Theatre is located at 100 College Parkway (off Meridian Blvd.) in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. Visit the Mammoth Lakes Foundation website for directions.
Support college in Mammoth
Proceeds from the evening go to the Mammoth Lakes Foundation in support of higher education and cultural enrichment in the Eastern Sierra. The Foundation’s successes include supporting Cerro Coso Community College, which recently graduated its largest class of students, creating a state-of-the-art student apartment facility, and providing scholarships to 58 local students for the 2010/11 school year.
