DAM Short Film Festival:
There are hundreds upon hundreds of short films made every year, yet the public only sees a small percentage. The average film festival receives between 500 and 2000 submissions, yet rarely screens more than 5 percent of these. Even worse, films that do make it to the festival circuit only have a limited lifespan, and disappear from view within a year of two.

The Dam Short Film Society aims to remedy this. The annual Dam Short Film Festival will screen approximately 100 unique shorts, from all years and of numerous styles and subjects matters.
