Tryon International Film Festival 2021

October 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

This year, Tryon International Film Festival will showcase about 50 curated films from around the world during the three-day in-person event. The Festival is renowned for its southern hospitality in Tryon, NC, which is billed as “The Friendliest Town in the South.” Because the Film Festival is one of the town’s largest and most far-reaching events, officials, businesses, and citizens literally roll out the red carpet for the guests and filmmakers who come from all corners of the world. “Coming to Tryon and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the fall is a wonderful experience within itself,”

The Tryon Fine Arts Center along with The Tryon Theatre, a vintage, state-of-the-art cinema, which has been in continuous operation for more than 80 years, play host to the opening gala and award ceremony as the retail shops, bars and dining establishments embrace visitors.

Plan to spend the entire festival at one of our exclusive B&B’s along with your fellow filmmakers. Introduce your own film, attend a breakout session, walk the streets or hang out at our complementary VIP lounge in the center of town.

By virtue of the number of high-quality submissions received over the years, our film selection process has matured as well. We select highly crafted films of sophisticated workmanship in the full-length features, short films and documentary categories. We are also known for our Human Rights & Dignity category which has been a cornerstone performance grouping since our inception. Films submitted in this category also have a good chance of also being screened in our sister festival in Gstaad, Switzerland.
