Trinity Film Coalition (TFC) Film Festival; co-founded by Detroit based filmmakers in 2007, was renamed the Trinity International Film Festival in 2013. Now in its 11th year, this festival continues to provide a platform for artists around the world to showcase their films, network and gain access to industry resources.

    It was great to have our film shown amongst a bevy of films from around the world. Trinity International Film Festival was a plus for my filmmaking team because we got to hear feedback from fellow filmmakers in a no holds arred scenario. The feedback, both positive and negative will go
    a long way by in making my team and I better filmmakers. Trinity International Film Festival really is a festival run by filmmakers for filmmakers. Happy 10th anniversary!
