After two years of being online only because of the pandemic, Nevada's largest film festival will return to Boulder City, Nev., Feb. 16 to 20.
The 19th annual Dam Short Film Festival at the Elaine K. Smith Center in downtown Boulder City, the town built for Hoover Dam workers about a half-hour drive south from the Las Vegas Strip.
The lineup includes 153 short films, 31 programs and Q&As with filmmakers. Films from Iceland, China, Mexico, Brazil, Israel, Netherlands, France, Poland and others will be included.
Thematic 60- to 90-minute program blocks will focus on animation, comedy, documentary, drama, horror, international, sci-fi, Nevada, music videos, love and romance and underground.
"We are beyond thrilled to once again present our excellent and diverse programming to live audiences who can share their love of short films together," said Lee Lanier, co-founder and director of continuity. "We're grateful to the public that made our virtual festival a success the last two years and are ecstatic to be back in person to showcase quality and unique short films."
Tickets are $12 per film block or $150 for the full five-day pass; $45 day passes for Thursday and Sunday; and $50 day passes for Friday and Saturday are also available.
