“Trinity Hall: Origins,” a documentary about the founding of Monmouth County’s only all girls school, has been officially selected for the Garden State Film Festival. The festival, which is New Jersey’s premier independent film festival, takes place in Asbury Park and Cranford from March 21-24. “Trinity Hall: Origins” will be shown at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in the Kingsley Ballroom in the 12:15 p.m. block of films on Sunday, March 24, 2024.
“Trinity Hall: Origins” features Trinity Hall Founders Mairead and Sean Clifford, Victoria and Justin Gmelich, and Founding Head of School Mary Mahon Sciarrillo as they tell the true story of how they set out to create the first all-girls school in a challenging landscape. They dive into the foundational beginnings of its creation and the importance of the school's existence in Monmouth County. The documentary is an extraordinary testament to the belief that empowering girls can change the world. The twists and turns, setbacks and victories illustrate the school's core values of leadership, respect, perseverance and faith. The 30-minute documentary was created by Theresa Kiernan, Trinity Hall head of school and Chloe Toole, Trinity Hall alumna from the Class of 2017 and communications manager.
