CAP’N FLAPJACK AND THE CURSE OF THE STICKY ANCHOR (SciFi, 18 minutes) Josh Steinbauer, director

Cap'n Flapjack, a lonely pirate, trudges through life and work in mourning and melancholy. As the chef and messenger of a pancake delivery service, his journey ranges from the poet to the bosses.

CAGE (Animation, 4 minutes) Pengpeng Du, director

Life is liberty in a CAGE. CAGE represents a situation that is filled with a lot of constraints, or a habit or an addiction that is hard to get rid of. This project is to present a Chinese cultural and traditional visual style to audiences. On the other hand, CAGE tries to inspire them to recall their memory and consider what the meaning of life is to them individually. Created at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute.

WHAT'S EATING DAD? (Comedy, 10 minutes) Michael Goldburg, director

When Chloe meets her boyfriend's parents for the first time, what's really for dinner is something she never imagined. In the vein of Woody Allen meets Shaun of the Dead, WHAT'S EATING DAD? is award-winning Brooklyn filmmaker Michael Goldburg's hilariously absurd, prizewinning, horror-comedy.

The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the only independent, international film festival in the world dedicated to Brooklyn’s indie film scene.
