DAM999, the most controversial movie of the year 2011, with 5 Oscar selections under the categories of 'Best Picture, 'Original Score' and 'Original Soundtrack' is tribute to the 1975 Banqiao Dam disaster in China that claimed 250,000 lives. The Screenplay of the movie was added to the permanent core collection in Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences before its release in 2011. DAM999 was officially suggested to the festival committee by famous Israelian Director Dan Wolman, the eminent Jury of numerous International film festivals.

I would like to thank Director Dan Wolman & the Festival committee for this surprise." The film will compete under 12 categories in Golden Rooster Awards which will take place in Shaoxing City towards the end of September.
