Tryon International Film Festival
Oct. 9-11, 2020
The Tryon International Film Festival (TRIFF) proudly presents Season Six, October 9, 10 and 11, 2020. In just six years, which have included notables like Robert, Amy and Jamie Redford, Laura Dern, Kevin Bernhardt, Cecilia Peck, Mathew Modine and others; our IMdb listed festival has gained widespread attention in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and beyond. In fact, if your film performs well in Tryon, it may also be a candidate for our sister festival in Gstadd, Switzerland the very same year. Beyond Switzerland your film may also travel to Berlin, France and London, because of their strong industry ties.
It is with great pleasure we present a 2017 Entry: "Sunday Fun Day" co-directed / produced / written by Maxine Eloi, whom also plays in the lead role of "RINA". Maxine received her BFA in acting from Boston University. A woman of color, her parents were born in Haiti, and Maxine is a fist generation US citizen. This is her second film.
"Sunday Fun Day" is co-directed / produced / written by Rob Underhill. His films have been in competition at over 200 film festivals worldwide, including ST. LOUIS and SEATTLE (both Academy Award-qualifying film festivals), OAXACA (Mexico), SUNSCREEN (Academy-sponsored) and CANNES (France), have received over 100 awards including for Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and have scored rave reviews from top film critics like Mark Bell of FILM THREAT and Anne Brodie in CRITICIZE THIS!
