The Maumee Film Festival celebrates the art of creativity, filmmaking and storytelling. It allows aspiring filmmakers the unique opportunity to see their work projected on a movie screen in the iconic and beautiful Maumee Indoor Theater. The festival also celebrates the city of Maumee, a peaceful community situated along the scenic Maumee River in Northwest Ohio.

Previously, we have accepted short films only, however; we have expanded the event to feature longer running films.
