There is no admission fee to the screening, but donations to the nonprofit agency Polk County Film Initiative will be appreciated. In addition, there will be live music by the band Casual Zealots, a beer truck, and the food truck Up In My Grill. Festival-goers with a Festival pass will receive two free beers. Dogs are welcome.
“LIFE•LOVE•DOGS” is one of the more than 60 films screening at the Festival. It explores the intense emotional bonds people share with their dogs and how these bonds inspire people and their dogs to mutually rescue each other. It contains three heart-warming stories about why people will go to the ends of the earth for the love of a dog.
It runs one hour and 31 minutes.
The Film Festival starts Friday, Oct. 11, with an evening gala. All day Saturday and most of Sunday, the films will be screened in various locations in Tryon. For complete details, visit online: TryonInternationalFilmFestival.org.
