Dam Short Film Festival going virtual this year

Loading ....


Launching Feb. 11 the Dam Short Film Society is proudly taking the 17th Annual Dam Short Film Festival online as a virtual event.

Offering all the great qualities of past festivals – including excellent and diverse programming, filmmaker Q&As, and scheduled virtual events that give audiences and filmmakers the opportunity to mix, mingle and learn more about these original and unique stories from around the world.

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.
