Nevada’s largest film festival is celebrating 20 years of bringing movie lovers unique and diverse films to enjoy over an extended 6-day period. The 20th Annual Dam Short Film Festival will screen 147 short films February 14-19, 2024, in the Elaine K. Smith Center in downtown Boulder City, Nevada.

With two decades of successfully entertaining audiences, the festival will showcase 29 carefully selected  thematic 60- to 90-minute program blocks with categories including Animation, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Horror, International, Sci-Fi, Nevada, Love & Romance, and Underground. This year’s festival features films from a wide variety of countries like Ireland, China, Mexico, Japan, Israel, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, and many more.
