2019 Tacoma Film Festival Official Selection | OPENING NIGHT
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 6:00 p.m. 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.
