Did you know? The TriFilm Society hosts a free community events calendar: trifilmsociety.com/calendar.
The calendar is free to access and it’s filled with film-related events happening in the Triangle area of North Carolina such as screenings, networking opportunities, film festivals, and deadlines for applications.
Why do we host the calendar?
The purpose is to provide film and video makers, event organizers, and film fans with upcoming events of interest. This helps bring together the community in real life. It also helps them find the resources, connections, and opportunities they need to succeed.
How do you use the calendar?
To use the calendar, flip through the dates. You can view by week, month, or agenda to see what’s coming up. (Similar to other digital calendars.)

We hope your upcoming event is a success, and we’d love to hear about it!
How did the event calendar begin?
The TriFilm Society event calendar began many years ago.
Camden Watts, who founded the TriFilm Society in 2009, began collecting NC film events on her personal blog (camdenwatts.com) so that film and video makers could stay connected. When the TriFilm Society website launched, the events calendar was moved to make it more accessible.
Since then, we’ve created the form to make it easier to add your own events. We occasionally share events of interest on the blog and social media, too.
