FilmDayton

FilmDayton promotes and markets the nine county region, in order to recruit and facilitate the production of film, television, commercials, corporate videos, music videos, and documentaries, as well as emerging forms of media. Film Commissioner Lisa Grigsby explains, " in simple terms, the film commission acts as a concierge service for productions interested in using the Greater Dayton region as a backdrop." It's been a long time coming, but as FilmDayton Board President Shaunn Baker shares, "the commission has been a goal since the organization started in 2008, and I'm glad we've finally made it happen."
