TriFilm is a unique organization. There's nothing quite like it in the area – and after talking to people in the industry who live elsewhere, I realized there's nothing like it in other places, either. It's an open, nurturing environment for collaboration and support. I can't overstate how valuable it is for people who want to connect with others who are making or are interested in making films."Rachel Healy, TriFilm Society Charter Member
Since joining up with TriFilm Society, everything I hoped to get from a filmmaking community was around me. I've met countless people with helpful advice on filmmaking, I've gotten feedback on my screenplays I've never gotten before, and I've been able to make short films on my own and am getting help on more film projects in the future.Michael Papich, TriFilm Member

What our members are saying
Being a member of the TriFilm Society has put me in touch with filmmakers I didn’t know, given me closer contact with filmmakers I already knew, and created a growing screenwriting group which I attend every month. Camden’s leadership, energy and good cheer is infectious and the future potential of the group is amazing."Jim McQuaid, TriFilm Society Charter Member
One of the most amazing things about TriFilm is that it has actually led to tangible paying jobs and career advancement. For example, I recently attended a filmmaking panel where I made several industry connections, including representatives from a production company. Within weeks, they were hiring me for project work as a writer/director and the relationship continues to evolve in exciting ways. Aside from that, I have made many meaningful connections at TriFilm networking events, allowing me to significantly expand my base of colleagues and collaborators. In a very short time, TriFilm has become an invaluable resource!"Fabian Marquez, TriFilm Society Charter Member
