The Trinity International Film Festival provides a platform for artists around the world to showcase their independent films.


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 9th year, this festival continues to provide a platform for artists around the world to showcase their films, network and gain access to industry resources.

We’ve acknowledged hundreds of local, national and international filmmakers. Our sponsored prizes are provided by Sony. In previous years, winners of our “Best Short Film” category have aired nationally on the BET-Centric and locally on TV20.

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.

Special recognition is given to films that are officially selected. Prizes are awarded to winners in the following categories: Best Short Film and Best Feature Film. Each filmmaker will receive the Trinity International Film Festival, Official Selection Laurel. We do not send out certificates for official selections. Films that are awarded in our festival categories will receive their corresponding certificates, prizes or awards via mail. We are currently not in a position to provide transportation or accommodations for filmmakers. As our festival grows, this is a service we would like to provide in the future.

The highlight of this event over the years has been all of the innovative work we've showcased by indie filmmakers and our audience that supports the TI Film Festival. We invite you to join us for this year's festival.
