Tryon International Film Festival
October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 13 @ 5:00 pm
Now in our fifth year, TRYON19, presented by Polk County Film Initiative, proudly announces the dates of the upcoming festival to be held from October 11th to October 13th, 2019 in Tryon, N.C. Year Five is a milestone year for our film festival placing us firmly on international film competition circuit.
The Tryon International Film Festival is a spectacle to be witnessed only by being here. It is one of the few film festivals in the world that employs an entire town. Seven screening venues operate seamlessly during the entire three-day event as retail shops, restaurants and bars come alive with activity as filmmaker and fans walk the streets and enjoy parties, street entertainment and art.
In 2016, TRYON expanded its categories of submissions from full-length feature films, shorts and documentaries to the highly impactful “Human Rights & Dignity (HRD)” performance category. The impact of this additional grouping resulted in an influx of films from 17 countries.
TRYON19 will continue to build on HRD’s ever important form of messaging which touches all areas of the globe. Many of the most powerful films in this category vividly reach the viewer’s soul regardless of language translation.” ◊♦
