After being selected at the Toronto International Festival, the BFI London Film Festival, FantasticFest, ScreamFest, the Sitges International Film Festival, director Jerome Sable’s The Legend of Beaver Dam will be landing at the Berlinale’11 right after its high-profile screenings at Sundance’11.

The Legend of Beaver Dam, a 12 minute short directed by Jerome Sable, has been honored with several awards, including “Best Horror Short Film” at Fantastic Fest, and “Best Short Film” at both ScreamFest L.A. and Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya, the world’s number one fantasy/horror fest.
