Tryon International Film Festival – 2017

Image may contain: textNot just a quaint country town anymore, Tryon, NC has put its mark on the map in more than one way.  It’s always been a favorite spot for the equine enthusiast, but this year’s equestrian theme at the 3rd Annual Tryon International Film Festival had a surprising addition when EQUUS joined and brought some very prominent and skilled filmmakers and stars to the show. For those that may not know, EQUUS is based out of New York City and highlights and rewards the diverse and creative efforts of those in indie film, music, and advertising, who artistically pay homage to the horse through media. Some of this years winners include Best Feature: “Three Days in August” by Jonathan Brownlee and Best Tryon’s Overall: “Bound” by Daljit Kalsi.

This year’s judges include some very well known names in the film industry- Producer/Director Frank M Calo whose film “The Believer,” starring Ryan Gosling and Billy Zane, won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Festival, and photographer/cinematographer Elma Garcia, who has beautifully directed many brand name    commercials and worked with some of the best cinematographers in the world. She is also an Amateur Dressage rider and lives in Mill Spring, North Carolina.

Festivities included a Red Carpet Gala with a horse parade, producer/director and screenwriting workshops, cocktail party and awards ceremony.  Films played throughout the weekend and consisted of equestrian films, documentaries, human rights and dignity films, short films and student films.

Tom and Carole McKay speaking with Drea Dnur about her first short film, ” The Spirit of Nina in Buffalo”, a film about Tryon’s own international star Nina Simone.

 

 

This was the first year Pinnacle Sotheby’s International Realty became a prominent sponsor for the festival and it was an honor to be able to support our community and all the people that were involved to produce such an amazing event.

In fact this home was built on the original foundation and closely resembles the very first house on the lot!

Sit at your own private deck and let the morning sun kiss your cheeks as the birds chirp in the distance and the gentle breeze sweeps across the hillside. A gorgeous scene of Rumbling Bald Mountain is the backdrop for the lake. No matter the season you’ll always have a stunning view! 

The lower deck offers an even closer view of the water and the rare opportunity to own a unique waterside deck that can be used for fishing, duck feeding or just lounging close to the water’s edge. The charming sunroom perfectly lets in the morning sun and is the most treasured room in the house. Enjoy the lake from inside during the cold weather or watch a summer storm safely. Make future memories in this traditional style, family lakefront home.

Our featured “Extraordinary Home ♦ Extraordinary View” this week is a stunning lakeside gem with immaculate views in every corner. Sit on the sundeck and enjoy front row entertainment as the birds soar over the mountaintops, mother ducks teach their brood of ducklings, and an occasional deer peeks through the bushes for a sip of water. 

Enjoy morning tea or coffee on the main level deck as you start your day. The views are spectacular! Watch as the sunlight sparkles on the lake and the mountains paint their reflection on the water.

Wave at the boaters as they cruise around the waterway, and the fisherman as they row home with the day’s catch.

As the sun begins to sink, relax at your lower patio and watch the picturesque lake through old world inspired archways.

On rainy days, sit in the cozy  sunroom and gaze outside your big bay windows as approaching storms light up the mountains and raindrops dance along the lake.

No matter what the day brings, you can always come back home to your own paradise in the mountains. Don’t escape the world, embrace it!
