'Dear Dad' is a comedy-drama short celebrating fatherhood through the eyes of three young children. Set in downtown New York City, we follow our young protagonists throughout their concrete stomping grounds as they embark on a series of mischievous adventures. Narrowly avoiding capture, the kids end up in their “secret spot” overlooking the city. Here they discuss love and loss, friends and family with warmth and humor—leading to a painful realization that only their friendship will be able to soothe. Dear Dad was semifinalist at Cannes Indie Shorts Awards, shortlisted at Berlin Commercial, got 5 stars on Short Films Matter and was featured on Nowness Picks and Beyond The Short.
