March 28, 2014. On Thursday, March 27, The Inn at Crestwood Resort and Spa in Boone was proud to once again host the premiere screening of the Banff Film Festival World Tour.
Approximately 150 guests attended the event that has been held at Crestwood for more than three years.
“The turnout was incredible,” said Susanna Russell, Director of Events and Marketing at The Crestwood.
“It was a beautiful, yet chilly, night but the sunset was beautiful. It was a very festive atmosphere, and watching a movie premiere is exciting at any rate. It was beautiful and everyone had such a great time.”
This advanced premiere was held for the sponsors of the festival, the Banff staff and the Appalachian State University benefactors, said Russell.
Guests of the night enjoyed drinks, dinner and of course the screening of the highly anticipated film festival.
“We hold this every year because we really love to support the community and Appalachian, and what better way to do that than to host the premiere at this beautiful setting that we have? It’s just the perfect spot!”
The Banff Film Festival World Tour, which screens at Appalachian State University starting March 29, is already sold out.
