SUMMER 2013 VOLUME 24 , ISSUE 3 Lights, Camera, Action T rindieFest Film Festival is an annual event held each mid-September in Trinidad. Its objective is to help others showcase their artistic creations where industry leaders, fellow filmmakers, screenwriters, and movie-lovers alike come together to sample the works from a world-wide pool of talented individuals. It was also instrumental in connecting its 2012 winners with distribution deals, producers and/or agents. TrindieFest organizers, Kirk and Julie Loudon, were very proud of that accomplishment in their first year of operation. They hope to do the same for winners each year. TrindieFest 2013 will showcase a broad variety of film genres, guest speaker presentations, and other social gatherings for the attendees, festival participants and volunteers to share their experiences and common love of filmmaking in an intimate setting. The 4-day event starts on Thursday, September 12, with a ceremony opening the festival at the A.R. Mitchell Joe Estevez, Mark Stolaroff, Kirk Loudon, Museum, and ends in a private ceremony and dinner to actor producer director celebrate the top 3 winners in each category who have entered their projects into the festival.
