FilmDayton 2015 Oscar Celebration Goes Viral

This year we’re hosting a VIRTUAL Awards party!

Behind every Oscar winner, there’s a film commission. FilmDayton is a 501c3, non-profit that serves the film industry in the greater Dayton and Miami Valley region.
FilmDayton depends on contributions to finance resources and programs to grow our local film industry and attract outside productions to our area.
Money spent on a babysitter, tux or fancy dress for the traditional party would be better utilized in supporting our local film commission. Contributions are tax deductible.

And now, on to the fun……
