See Some Dam Movies and Hear Some Damn Music: But What About F**** Friday?

Lights, Camera, Boulder City!? This weekend has Boulder City hosting the Dam Short Film Festival.

"The Dam Short Film Festival will be held February 4-6, 2005, in Boulder City, Nevada, and will feature 100 short films of varied style, subject, and origin.
Program blocks will include Live-Action, Documentary, Animation, and Youth/Family. In addition, there will be a special Programmers' Picks, "Best of Ai" Showcase (The Art Institutes) , and Animation Trip Retrospective.

Boulder City - home of the Hoover Dam - is 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Screenings will be held in the historic American Legion Hall with additional events at the auditorium of the City Water & Power Building, both located downtown."

A preview of select films was held at the Jan 7th Spaced Invaders First Friday after party, including "Perils in Nude Modeling" and Day Off The Dead.

While it's great that this film fest is available to us desert dwellers, it seems to be asking the artily-inclined to choose between the First Friday offerings in Vegas and the first day of films in Boulder City, both on the 4th. But really, is it so bad to have too much of a good thing? Ponder that and know that ticket prices, film schedule and list of events are all to be found on the site.

Also The Silver State and The Big Friendly Corp. will be playing at Mateo's on the 4th as well.
