Founded in 2012, and now in our fourth year, the Trinity Film Festival is a national platform for undergraduate filmmakers. We aim to provide a celebratory evening of cinematic dialogue that enables student filmmakers to premier their short films on the big screen, engage other student filmmakers, meet industry professionals, and win cash prizes.

We are more than just the film.
