DAYTON FILM COMMISSION

City of Middletown Announces
Partnership with FilmDayton

 

The City of Middletown has partnered with local nonprofit film commission FilmDayton to support economic and workforce development by promoting and supporting movie production in the area. “There has been recent film production in the Middletown area and we’d like to grow that interest. FilmDayton has great experience navigating the film industry and we look forward to working with them to promote Middletown as an area of interest,” said Middletown City Manager Doug Adkins.

 

“The state film tax credit is bringing films to Ohio and FilmDayton is excited to work with the city of Middletown to bring more movie production to the area.  The economic impact films bring can be huge.  Films hire local crew, fill hotel rooms, hire local caterers, rent locations and vehicles and they buy building materials from the hardware store. With $40 million annually in film tax incentive funds, we’d like to help producers and directors use Middletown as a set for their movies,” said Lisa Grigsby, executive director of FilmDayton.

 

Recent films shot in Middletown include a Lifetime movie “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le”, as well as independent film “Donnybrook.”

 

 

 

 

 

We bring together local filmmakers, students and fans at monthly “Film Connections” meetings. We continue to train and grow our local talent and crew to encourage new filmmaking in the Dayton area. FilmDayton originated from the DaytonCREATE effort to foster the growth of the “creative class” and strengthen the local economy.FILM DAYTON is advancing the art, craft and business of film in the Dayton region.
As a full-service nonprofit film commission we are dedicated to creating jobs and economic growth by promoting and supporting movie production in the Miami Valley.
