Filmmakers expected in attendance.

The Seagull
Director: Justin Lee | 10 mins | USA
A stuffed dog named Cream Cheese is acutely aware of how little he belongs in a world meant for humans. One day, he decides to leave his friend Lea and his small town in France to find whatever it is that he’s looking for.

Sea of Fog
Director: Imran Siddiquee | 14 mins | USA
Strangers pass each other every day on the ferries leaving and entering San Francisco – some find romance, others remain unseen. Sea of Fog explores the distance between the dreams we’re sold about love and its daily reality.

Eubie
Director: Eiko Fan | 5 mins | USA
Eubie paints with a paint brush attached to her baseball hat. She moves her head across the canvas with bright colors of her choice. The brush strokes often show jiggles as she giggles with joy. The viewers can see her joy in spending time creating and can see that Art is Food for the soul of our artist.

The Condo
Director: David Zhou | 23 mins | USA
A comedy about best friends and roommates, Steven and Rahul, who open their condo into an underground casino in order to raise money to pay off a debt owed to the Chinese gambling syndicate.
