The FilmDayton Festival launched in 2009 as an all-volunteer labor of love, dedicated to showcasing the great talent connected to the Dayton region. In early years, films were welcomed by invitation only with a focus on locally-connected films and filmmakers including winners from SXSW, Sundance, True/False Festivals.
After years of growing crowds and great success, we’ve added a submission element for shorts and features in varied genres. With a special eye to Ohio-talent, we are dedicated to supporting independent filmmakers from across the country (and world) and sharing their work with our engaged and film-saavy regional audiences.
The FilmDayton Festival draws strongly on audiences from the Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati areas as well as visitors from Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Florida and New York.
Submissions are now open via FilmFreeway.com for the 7th. annual festival, taking place (tentatively) October 23,24&25, 2015.
