The Tahoe Underground Film Festival (TUFF) is a student-run, alternative film and media festival based in Incline Village, Nevada, on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. TUFF seeks work that expands the boundaries of media. We are proudly hosted and organized by the students in the Sierra Nevada University Fine Arts Program. We’re looking for intersections between exhibition and production; between content and location; between site and performance.

We specifically welcome contemporary film, video, and installation work that exploits site-specific modes of production, highlights environmental concerns, and questions media itself. We hope to highlight the best in artistic, experimental, original, humorous, political, and visionary film, video and the greater spectrum of the visual arts.

TUFF will always be free for artists. Festival fees only add to the concerns of an elite system of independent production, favoring those who have resources unrelated to their practice. TUFF seeks to be democratic in its call for entires, and will be committed to raising funds to support rewarding artists for their work.

Submissions are handled exclusively online here.
