Event

Trinity Film Festival is a celebration of the best undergraduate filmmakers in the world. It is an intimate event at one of the premier independent movie theaters in the United States. Audiences, professional judges, and accepted filmmakers all watch the films together in a 1930s-style movie palace, followed by an Oscars-style awards party on the beautiful campus of Trinity College. Filmmakers are required to attend if selected, and will be the stars of the evening — they will have the opportunity to network with other filmmakers and our judging panel of film professionals, to hear feedback directly from audience members, and to win cash prizes on a night they'll never forget.
