Ready for the 2020 Trenton Film Festival? Earlier this year, at the 2019 Trenton Film Festival, audiences were fascinated by various dark comedies, life contemplation, pickpockets, a mountain keeper who decides to climb the mountain, and a lovestruck barista. This coming year is shaping up to provide a similar experience: The 2020 Trenton Film Festival will take place March 26 through 29th.

Maybe this year’s audience at the Trenton Film Festival will once again be delighted by a barista crushing on his best friend? Along with the many films honored to be screened at the festival, there will be panels and opportunities for viewers to ask filmmakers about their projects. The event also gives the filmmakers a chance to share their passion for their films with viewers. The process for the 2020 festival is in full swing and the Trenton Film Society is currently taking submissions from filmmakers until December 2, 2019. Finalists will be notified by January 3rd if their films will be screened at the film festival.

The information is posted on the Trenton Film Society’s website:

“The call for entries is now open for the 2020 Trenton Film Festival. The festival screens films by creators in various stages of their careers, hailing from nearby communities and from around the world. To be considered, films must have been completed after 1/1/2018.”

The 2019 Trenton Film Festival screened a wide variety of films, from dark comedies to everyone’s favorite barista. The barista, named James, is pining for his friend Sarah in the movie “Sugar Cube” which won Best Narrative feature. Although we don’t know exactly what audiences will be seeing at the 2020 festival, the Trenton Film Society has been working to educate and entertain audiences through film for over 10 years. The values of the organization are stated on their website as well:

“We bring together filmmakers, film professionals, and area residents of all ages and cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to build a better understanding of filmmaking, to explore the issues and perspectives in a variety of films–from local to international–and to build an appreciation of the film arts.”

Through research on the organization any young filmmaker can learn about the benefits of entering their work in the Trenton Film Society’s annual festival. For the 2020 festival there is still time to enter through filmfreeway.com/TrentonFilmFestival.
