Dayton Independent Film Festival
September 25-28, 2020
The Dayton Independent Film Festival celebrates regional filmmaking and stories from Midwestern filmmakers who offer their unique vision. We believe that through impactful storytelling, we can increase empathy, understanding and a sense of discovery. Our goal is to provide a platform to foster dialogue and reflection with an abundance of passion and creativity. DIFF 2020 showcases a wide variety of Midwestern voices from established professionals, emerging filmmakers and students.
