Sundance Film Festival Shorts

On June 16, Sundance Institute returns to BAM to host the ShortsLab NYC, an all-day educational workshop. The Sundance-organized seminar of screenings and panels offer filmmakers insight and access into story development, production, and exhibition of narrative short-form storytelling. Rooftop has long been a champion of the short film as its own artistic medium, so to kick off the weekend, Rooftop is proud to co-present an evening of amazing shorts from Sundance’s acclaimed programming.

Animated Films:

DR. BREAKFAST (Stephen Neary | USA | 7 min.)

One day at breakfast, a man’s soul bursts out of his eyeball. Two wild deer caretake his catatonic body in this meditation on the quirky, but rejuvenating, nature of friendship.

BELLY (Julia Pott | USA | 7 min.)

Oscar is coming of age, against his better judgment. In doing so he must experience the necessary evil of leaving something behind, but can still feel it in the pit of his stomach.
