BOULDER CITY (KTNV) — Launching Feb. 11, the Dam Short Film Society is proudly taking the 17th Annual Dam Short Film Festival online as a virtual event.

The virtual event will feature diverse programming, filmmaker Q&As and virtual events that will give audiences and filmmakers that oppotunity to mix and mingle.

The 2021 Festival is COVID-friendly and more accessible than ever before.

Growing despite the pandemic, this year’s Dam Short Film Festival will premiere and screen more than 160 short films, broken down into 25 thematic 60- to 75-minute program blocks with categories including Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Horror, International, Love & Romance, Music Videos, Nevada, Sci-Fi and Underground.

It comes as no surprise that countless films with pandemic subject matter were submitted to the festival; however, only a handful of films were chosen to screen, with selections in the Comedy, Love & Romance, and Nevada categories.

The Festival is also excited to showcase “Done With Those Days,” a music video from the popular Colorado band DeVotchKa; and the short films “All-In” starring iconic filmmaker and actor King Orba, “Doesn’t Fall Far” featuring Oscar-Nominated actor Eric Roberts [imdb.com], “A Piece of Cake” starring Rich Sommer, and “Ganef” with Sophie McShera from Downton Abbey.

Powered by Eventive, the Dam Short Film Festival’s virtual experience will offer viewers an on-demand screening experience, with tickets sold for entire households to enjoy rather than per person, like in years past.

All-access household passes to the entire Festival are available for $100, while household tickets to individual program blocks can be purchased for $12 each.

A full lineup of live-streaming events will be announced soon.
