For the first time, Tryon International Film Festival will include a film-industry trade show — TRIFF Expo 2021 — scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 9 and 10, 2021, during the three-day festival weekend in the North Carolina mountains. This will be the perfect opportunity for cinema professionals to network, showcase their work, and look for new business and creative opportunities. Ideal vendors include actors, film schools, technical professionals (such as lighting, sound, special effects), distribution and booking agencies, producers, directors, screenwriters, and other film festivals. At this time, Tryon International Film Festival is planning to host a traditional in-person festival. However, if by July 31 the pandemic is still a danger, the festival will be restructured to be virtual or hybrid, and all Expo deposits will be returned. We have space for a maximum of 50 vendors.
