Submissions Now Open for TFF 2017

The Trenton Film Festival invites you to submit your film for our 2017 festival, running March 29 through April 2.

Located half-way between New York City and Philadelphia, Trenton is a small city with easy access to one of the largest film markets in the world, yet intimate enough to give new film exposure that might be hard to achieve in a larger place or festival.

To be considered, films must have been completed after 9/1/2015. Categories include Narrative Feature, Narrative Short, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short, Animation, and Experimental, Music Video, or Spoken Word. Deadlines are as follows:

Early Bird Deadline: October 7
Regular Deadline: November 1
Late Deadline: December 1
