While many of the films screened are environmental films, the festival also celebrates a section featuring important American independent films, new films from Latin America and award-winning music documentaries.

Notably, this year there will be three special screenings offering intimate insights into selected films.



Free Rider: The Jake Burton Story will be screened at North Star Village on Saturday, December 3 at 6:00 p.m.

The intimate and insightful documentary features interviews with Burton’s family, friends and fellow snowboarders, including action sports icons Shaun White, Kelly Clark and Mark McMorris. Burton, who is credited with making snowboards, passed away in 2019, and the film pays homage to his beloved and loyal “riders,” the audience he faithfully addressed for decades on the front page of his snowboard company’s catalogs.



The film is narrated artistically by acclaimed actor Woody Harrelson, who was a close friend of Burton’s.

National Geographic Documentary Films has been a Tahoe Film Fest partner from the start and this year presents Fire of Love, The Terrority, Retrograde and The Flagmakers. Some other notable movies in this category are Wildcat, All the Breathes, Path of the Panther, and Dark Hobby.

On Sunday December 4th at 18:00 the film “Subject” will be shown in the Crystal Bay Club Casino Crown Room. Directed by Incline Village’s Jennifer Tiexiera, this film premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and unveils the ethics and responsibility inherent in documentary filmmaking by examining some of the top-grossing documentaries of the past three years.

Throughout the film, Tiexiera is able to show the impact of the commercial success of documentaries on the lives of the participants on screen.

Teixiera will participate in a post-film Q&A with some of the film participants after Sunday’s screening.

“Free Puppies!” will be screened on Saturday, December 3rd at 6:30pm in the Crown Room at the Crystal Bay Club Casino and the screening will benefit the Incline Village Pet Network Humane Society.

When Hurricane Katrina left more than 250,000 pets behind, the modern pet transportation infrastructure for a nationwide dog rescue effort was born. This film shows the challenges involved in helping to save the canine crisis from step one.

Tickets for this screening come with free food and drinks served for the show.

General admission to the event is $35 and all proceeds benefit the Pet Network Humane Society. Tickets can be purchased at petnetnet.org/filmfest.

The Tahoe Film Fest was also chosen as one of only three film festivals to show Steven Spielberg’s new film The Fabelmans, the other two being Los Angeles’ AFI Film Fest and Canada’s Toronto Film Festival, where it won the People’s Choice Award .

The Fabelmans will be screened at Incline Village Cinema on Friday, December 2 at 5:45 p.m. Tickets are still available.
