  • Thank you so much, Marshalle, Lazar and the whole Detroit Trinity International Film Festival team! This was such a great time!!! The hybrid experience allowed many people who couldn't attend in person to watch online! I really appreciated the networking opportunity during dinner, before the awards show! It was so beneficial!

    Your hard work and passion for this industry was evident and I hope to take part again, next year!

    We at Merry Go Round really appreciated the Best Student Film award! It was so encouraging! Congratulations to the filmmakers from Foodtime, that we shared the award with!

    Not sure what happened. The virtual event did take place. Got an email that said they needed another week to announce award winners, but had a date that was 2 days later. It said they would be announced on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. A month later, nothing. Sent email to see if they were posted anywhere else and never got a response. Looked at website and there's no updates. Wonder if they shut down... Sad because I was really excited about this event.
