The FilmDayton High School Film Festival is the only kind in the region. The three major objectives are to encourage excellence in media arts education, recognizing creative achievement in film/video production and to foster an exchange of ideas between students with different backgrounds and points of view. The festival draws entries from schools all over southern Ohio and northern Kentucky.
What makes this festival unique is the educational opportunity provided to students and teachers through our open judging event. Student are invited to screen their films in front of a panel of professional filmmakers and receive real-time feedback from the panel and their peers. Based on panel’s decision, the winning films will be screened at our Festival on April 19th at the Dayton Art Institute.
