The Dam Short Film Festival returns for it’s sixth anniversary from February 11-13 in Boulder City, Nevada with all of the film screenings occurring inside the 400-seat Boulder Theater. The 3-day festival screens films in categories including Drama, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Documentary, Animation, Student, and Nevada Filmmaker. The short films are grouped into 20 different programs.

“Our 6th anniversary should prove to be our best year yet,” said Lee Lanier, director of the Dam Short Film Society, “Not only are we in the historic Boulder Theatre, but we’re screening well over 100 short films.”

Local filmmakers are also highlighted by two programs.  The “Nevada Filmmakers” showcase will occur Friday, February and will screen 6 films from up-and-coming Las Vegas filmmakers. The “Best of Ai” Showcase will take place Thursday, February 11th and will show off the student and faculty work from the Art Institute of Las Vegas.  The Art Institute of Las Vegas actively encourages local filmmaking by serving a festival Showcase Sponsor for 2010.

For a fourth year, the festival will include a Film Market, where over 1000 short films will be available for check out and viewing.
The Dam Short Film Festival was created by the Dam Short Film Society, a non-profit Nevada corporation founded by Lee and Anita Lanier.
