The Movie Years Today Film Festival

***PREPARING FOR THE 2015 Festival***

Passes Available

Festival Passes are only $25 and can be purchased at The Grind Cafe, Vivacious, Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and The Heritage Cafe in downtown Trenton and Urban Escape Cafe in downtown Belleville! 

30+ Films over 7 days! October 2-8th, 2015 at the Centre Theatre in Downtown Trenton!

A major part of Trenton's history from 1917-1934 is a period known as The Movie Years, in which Trenton was the birthplace of the Canadian Film Industry! The Movie Years Today Film Festival showcases locally produced film and media projects in the Quinte and Surrounding areas. Keep an eye out for this year's incredible lineup of locally produced shorts, features and student films from Kingston to Brighton! This year's festival generously sponsored by the City of Quinte West, Prime Focus Productions and Quintessential Credit Union! 

Last year's lineup was spectacular and we are currently preparing for a bigger and better festival than ever before! Here are some of the films to browse while we prepare more info, coming soon!
