This year we will feature more than 50 films, including documentaries, narrative storytelling, music videos and animated films, which have been carefully curated by a dedicated jury of film professionals and professors. We will present post-screening Q&As and receptions that offer audiences the opportunity to interact with filmmakers who are at various stages in their career. Our filmmakers are based as nearby as the Trenton area and as far away as Israel, Italy, Iran, Slovenia and Ukraine. The 2020 Trenton Film Festival will be presented by Trenton Film Society at Mill Hill Playhouse (Passage Theatre), Thursday-Sunday, March 26-29. All-Festival Passes are available for $2
