  1. Greetings,

    I am just finishing color correction on our film, and was going to apply and post the competed film TODAY. I now noticed that you have closed application for this year’s event.

    Would it be possible to get a waiver to submit our film BLUE. We are all from the Cincinnati area, and would love to highlight the work we are doing in OHIO!!

      I will send your request to our FilmDayton Festival coordinator. I know he was putting the schedule together last week, but maybe slots are still available.
