Dam Short Film Festival Returns to Boulder City

The Dam Short Film Festival is returning to Boulder City next week for its ninth year.

The screenings for the festival start Wednesday at the Boulder Theatre and continue through Saturday, February 9. The 146 films entered in the festival are grouped into several categories: Drama, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Documentary, Animation, Student and Nevada Filmmakers.

This year’s festival will feature a 90-minute Found Footage Festival featuring old videos found at garage sales, thrift stores and dumpsters around the country. That festival will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 7.

Tickets to each film program or showcase are $7, while a four-day pass is $75. Tickets are available at damshortfilm.org or at the door on the day of the show.

Besides the films, there will also be several activities surrounding the festival, including the Film Market where visiting filmmakers, members of the film industry and the media can check out official selections. This year the films will be loaded onto tablets instead of in a DVD.
