Our High School Competition is open to all filmmakers ages 13-18, as well as youth groups and other high school organizations.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The RE:IMAGE Film Festival of the Diocese of Trenton was established to support and encourage the next generation of visual storytellers to explore the glory of God's creation, capture the perseverance for justice and truth, and uphold and defend the dignity of the human person.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Trenton, the RE:IMAGE Film Festival is a one day celebration of the moving image and how it reflects God’s love in our world. We showcase the work of artists and filmmakers who deliver inspiring, uplifting and faith-filled messages through film and digital media formats. ORGANIZERS
