Formerly The Movie Years Today, this rebranded festival in Quinte West celebrates the best in local and Canadian film in the original Hollywood of the North!
A major part of Trenton's history from 1917-1934 is a period known as The Movie Years, in which Trenton was known as the Hollywood of the North! The Movie Years Today Film Festival showcased locally produced film and media projects in the Quinte and Surrounding areas.
This documentary project began in October 2013, when Hope Stone was diagnosed with Lung Cancer and told she had 3 weeks to live. This short version won an Audience Choice Award in Belleville's 2015 Downtown DocFest, and we are working to make this feature project a reality!
Thank you to everyone who contributed in our IndieGOGO campaign, your donations were well used to continue shooting and creating backup drives of footage.
Every small donation has helped to bring this documentary closer to completion. Once it's complete, the majority of all proceeds will be donated back to local cancer charities in the Quinte area, so keep your eyes peeled for any updates to come on the project!

"Roots Calling" is a mid-length documentary project about identity and belonging.
When Eddie Gough was adopted at six months old, he began a life separated from his Indigenous roots. After a long struggle with feeling displaced and despising his own reflection, Eddie sets out on a journey to reconnect with his home community of Wikwemikong First Nation on Manitoulin Island during Pow Wow celebrations in search of his true identity.

Produced in Partnership with First Nations Technical Institute
