Description

Celebrate the opening of TRIFF19 at one of the best parties all year. On Friday, Oct 11, beginning at 6pm, the fun begins with a community of film lovers from far and wide. You will be treated to your selection of wine, beer, assorted beverages, and heavy hors d'oeurvres. TRIFF19 is your chance to meet filmmakers from around the world.

The highlight of the party is a screening of the film "Foster Boy" in Tryon Fine Arts Center's auditorium. Seating is open.

"Foster Boy" Synopsis:

Youseff Delara, Director - USA See the trailer

Micheal Trainer is a lawyer at the center of a trial in which a for-profit foster care agency puts a known sex offender into the same foster home as his young client Jamal, with catastrophic results. Michael, successful litigator with a long career protecting corporate interests, wants nothing to do with Jamal's case, until a Judge forces him to accept it. Initially he sees Jamal as a kid off the streets looking to grab a piece of corporate profits. But, when Jamal refuses to settle the case for any amount of money, Michael begins his representation in earnest. As their work together reveals the horrifying depth of the corrupt and abusive for-profit foster care agency, Michael is transformed from cynical skeptic to fierce warrior in the pursuit of justice.

This is the party and film not to be missed; come celebrate with fellow filmophiles while supporting the Tryon International Film Festival.

  • Friday Night Opening Reception/Screening 6pm-10pm ~ Heavy hors d'oeurvres, wine/beer, entertainment, and filmmaker Meet & Greet
