Come out and support local media and your first amendment rights as DATV presents the “Media That Matters Short Film Festival” on September 17th at 7:30pm, at the Neon Movies in Downtown Dayton. I went to this event last year and it was a really good time, the short films were very well done and really made you think.. well worth the price of admission to see these amazing short films.
The “Media That Matters Short Film Festival” is the premier national showcase for short films on the most important topics of the day. “Media That Matters” engages diverse audiences and inspires them to take action.
The festival features 12 jury selected short films that tackle a broad range of social issues with humor, humanity and honesty in 12 minutes or less. Topics range from gun violence and media censorship to urban development and climate change.
“By presenting this showcase DATV hopes to inspire Dayton area residents to use media to help make a difference in our community,” said Dan Suffoletto, Marketing Director.
Tickets to the festival are only $15 and I’ll deliver them myself to your house… or they can be purchased online at www.datv.org, at the Neon Movies box office, or at DATV’s Public Access Center located at 280 Leo St. in Dayton.
The event includes light refreshments and door prizes, with drinks available for purchase. Attendees will also receive a “Take Action Guide” that gives information about how they can take the messages of the films and make a difference in their daily lives.
Proceeds from the event will benefit DATV. DATV’s mission is to be a community forum that empowers all citizens to learn, create and express their ideas through electronic media. To accomplish its mission DATV provides the training equipment and facilities for local residents to make a difference in their communities by creating their very own noncommercial cable TV programs.
