Celebrate Opening Night of the 14th annual Tacoma Film Festival at The Pantages Theater with a screening of The Infiltrators and community event in partnership with local immigrant rights and anti-deportation groups. 

Doors open at 6pm. Arrive before the screening to enjoy refreshments and meet film fans, filmmakers, and community groups before the film. 

In The Infiltrators directors Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera present a hybrid cinematic language, combining familiar documentary form and scripted narrative to map an uncharted domain: inside an Obama-era immigration detention system. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community. The film's innovative storytelling approach in connection with a crucial public issue exemplifies TFF's mission to bring thought-provoking works to our community. 



Matt Martinez (Director of Content, KNKX) will facilitate a discussion with director Alex Rivera after the film, including an audience Q&A. 


Hear from and connect with local immigrant rights and anti-deportation activists and organizations in a resource-sharing reception before and after the film.

Basado en hechos reales, Los infiltrados es tanto un relato de suspenso de una misi贸n de alto riesgo como un retrato emocionalmente cargado de j贸venes visionarios que luchan por su comunidad. El enfoque innovador de la narraci贸n de la pel铆cula en relaci贸n con un tema p煤blico crucial ejemplifica la misi贸n de TFF de traer obras que invitan a la reflexi贸n a nuestra comunidad.
