Dam Short Film Festival

Ever find yourself growing tired of the prequels, sequels, and remakes filling today's cookie-cutter multiplexes? Rediscover the joy of movies at the 16th annual Dam Short Film Festival, taking place February 13-16 just minutes from Boulder City homes for sale.

History of the Film Festival

Users of FilmFreeway, a festival submission platform, rate the Dam Short Film Festival in the top 1.5 percent of more than 7,000 film festivals and contests worldwide. The largest film festival in Nevada is also one of the most popular cultural events in the state.

The festival's roots date back to 2003 when Lee and Anita Lanier formed a non-profit organization devoted to sharing their love of short films. Over the previous 15 years, the pair had worked in film production and computer animation while directing half a dozen of their short films.

In 2005, the festival made its official debut with screenings at the American Legion Hall. As the festival's scope expanded, it moved to the historic Boulder Theatre in 2008. John LaBonney served as festival director from 2012 to 2019, and under his stewardship, the festival began attracting sell-out crowds.

The Boulder Theatre

The background of the Boulder Theatre is a worthy topic for its own short film. Built-in 1931, the 400-seat theatre was at one time the only air-conditioned building in the Boulder City area. Legend has it that laborers working on Hoover Dam would splurge on a 25-cent ticket to escape the blistering heat for a couple of hours.

Boulder City Beerfest-Wardley Real Estate

One of the things our real estate agents love most about living in the Las Vegas area is that there's always something to do. It's a rare day that there isn't a festival, party or celebration of some kind going on, and this spring is shaping up to be no exception. Every year, Boulder City Beerfest is one of the events we look forward to the most.

The annual Boulder City Beerfest hits town at the end of March, and it's one of the year's best opportunities to sample some great food, live music and, of course, plenty of beer. If you're in the neighborhood looking at Las Vegas homes for sale, be sure to set aside a little time to enjoy the festivities!
