SHORTS IN COMPETITION: NARRATIVE

CUPCAKE

Directed by Sean McPhillips
SHORT NARRATIVE 9 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE CUPCAKE

Candi is torn between two loves: one for cupcakes, the other for a TV fitness guru. When she tries to shed one passion in order to gain the other, she is sent on an enjoyably absurd trajectory as she encounters the thin line between love and madness. Will poor Candi ever get to have her cake and eat it too?
