About Us

The Trenton Film Society is a non-profit organization with a mission to entertain, educate and engage the diverse Greater Trenton, New Jersey area through film.

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.

To our Community

Trenton Film Society believes in the power of film to tell stories, including those that are familiar to our individual experiences and those that are not. We recognize that too often the stories of African Americans have been untold and the voices of African-American filmmakers have been unheard. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We commit to doing more in the city of Trenton and beyond to provide a platform that welcomes, supports and amplifies black and brown voices through film.


The Trenton Film Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
