TRENTON – Duncan Armstrong  wants to bring the big screen back to Trenton.
The Quinte West councillor tabled a proposal during Monday night’s City Hall meeting to launch Trenton’s own film festival, with the help of the Toronto International Film Festival .
Armstrong told council he is in talks with the co-founders of TIFF to shine a light on this area’s rich cinematic history.
In the early 1900s, Trenton became a hub for film production, and the city is still remembered for its contributions to the Canadian film industry.
The year 2017 will mark a century since Trenton’s first movie production. Armstrong hopes to commemorate the date with the start of the new film festival.
More to come.
