Curated films via Computer Streaming

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tryon International Film Festival 2020 is switching gears to offer a larger selection of films to a worldwide audience ONLINE, presenting its curated films via computer streaming. 

The Festival will start Friday, Oct. 9, with a virtual gala and inspiring film. All other films will be available Saturday, Oct 10 and Sunday October 11 with special screenings offering live interviews with filmmakers and actors and even live Q&A.

This year we’ve curated 89 films for the festival. Each will feature a 1-2 minute personal intro and immediately after the film will be followed by a 3-8 minute zoom interview.

Every year we hear the comment that there are 2 (or more) films people want to see, but they are being screened at the same time in different locations, so you have to choose. Not this year!

Following the official festival dates, all films and recorded content will be available for eight days, Oct. 12-19.

One low price gets you all access to the Festival and its content in its entirely, there for you to view anytime, at your convenience, in the comfort of your home! How cool is that!


Sign up for the Festival Newsletter and the voting poll will be emailed to you at the start of the festival. You can sign up anytime during the festival and have until after the last film screening on Sunday, October 11 at 6:00pm to vote for your favorite film in each category. The winner will be announced During the awards ceremony Sunday evening at 8:pm

“This film festival will have special meaning to me,” Co-Founder BeauMenetre said. “Late last year, my teenage daughter Sabian died from a drug overdose, something that has changed my personal perspective as a parent and as a human being. I am dedicating this year’s Tryon International Film Festival to her, and it is my hope and prayer that in some way some of these films will shed light on personal loss, drugs, and coping.”
