Damah is a short film festival that launched in 2001 in Seattle, Washington and later moved to Los Angeles before settling for a few years in Hiroshima, Japan (2000-2013).  In 2019 Damah moved to Tokyo and we are once again excited to announce our next festival right in the heart of Tokyo.

“Damah” in Hebrew means “metaphor” or “parable.”  We look for stories from any genre that tell a story that is inspirational and heart warming.  Our festivals gather filmmakers and movie lovers alike where we celebrate the power of story because Your Story Matters!
