This week, Ira spoke with Tsvetelina Stefanova, executive director of the 17th Annual Dam Short Film Festival, which is going online as a virtual event beginning February 11. In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Stefanova talks about the history of the festival and how they put it together each year; the unique aspects of presenting the festival online due to COVID; the entries that are based on genres and themes; the unique filmmakers lounge; and how films are submitted and reviewed for consideration.
Stefanova is a founding member of the independent rock band Same Sex Mary and operates Bad Moon Booking, a Las Vegas based collective focused on promoting the best in the local and international DIY music and art community.
