There’s no better way to take in Nevada’s largest film festival than in the heart of an Art Deco-fied historic downtown that’s been part of the Nevada story for nearly 100 years. Every February, filmmakers and fans from all corners of the world flock to Boulder City to celebrate the art of short film. Over the course of five days, the Dam Short Film Festival presents more than 120 independent short films of all styles and genres.

Delighting indie filmmakers and movie buffs for 20 years, the Dam Short Film Festival screens more than 120 short films of all genres in the historic heart of Boulder City.

Comedy. Drama. Animation. Sci-fi. Horror. Documentary. Student films. The Dam Short Film Festival offers it all and more. The five-day film fest—Nevada’s largest—also includes a filmmaker meet and greet, mixers, and an awards ceremony. Winning films are determined by audience votes for every screening category, and awards are also given for Best Nevada Filmmaker, Best Music Video, and the Leslie Paige Award for Excellence in Filmmaking.

For even more film fest fun, opt for one of two VIP Experience packages. In addition to all-access passes, attendees enjoy early entry, concession discounts, invites to a Sunday brunch, raffle tickets, and more.
