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.

The TI Film Festival has hosted industry professionals locally and nationally to share their knowledge and expertise in various workshops and industry discussions. Special guests have included famed Actress and Producer, Tangi Miller, Sydicated Radio Host and Film Producer, Russ Parr, and Former BET Executive Producer, Ralph Scott, currently with the Aspire Network (Owned by Magic Johnson), film segment producer/head of production for more than 100 episodes of SNL, Tanya Ryno and Writer, Director, Qasim Basir.

    I was unable to attend the festival because of a prior festival acceptance commitment, but the communication was fantastic. Everything I saw online and on social media, makes me believe that the festival was a success. It will certainly be on my radar for future projects. Thanks team Trinity.
