Dam Short Film Festival

Great name for a festival showing of movie “shorts” at Boulder City. The Dam Short Film Festival is the brainchild of Lee and Anita Lanier, who are staging the showing from Thursday thru Sunday. There are day and evening screenings at the American Legion Hall, 508 California, with headquarters at the Boulder Dam Hotel at 1305 Arizona St. This is a real treat and real bargain at $5 per program (discounted day passes may still be available.) If you don’t see what you’re looking for at any of the screenings, there is an archive of more than 500 DVD’s you can watch. The ensemble has something for everyone – international, animated, horror, historical. Boulder City makes a easy day trip from Vegas, just head south down the 95 and discover the tree-lined downtown and covered sidewalks with cafes and wine shops. It’s a breath of fresh air from the big city. Here’s your chance to support some of that culture that everyone says is missing from Las Vegas. 702-293-4848. www.damshortfilm.org
