I Like Ribin Tims 'Dik'

Dik is an award-winning Australian short film, written and directed by Christopher Stollery, which has recently won the Best Short Film Audience Award, at the 2013 San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival: Frameline37.

This comedy short was filmed in 2011, and it explains the story of a concerned father of a six year old takes it the wrong way. The little kid (Keilan Grace) shows him a self-made paint with a sentence indicating he likes another boy's "dik". The father (Patrick Brammall) freaks out while the mother (Alexa Ashton) calmly says it's just a phase he's going through. Then they start discussing their past same-sex relationships and things quickly escalate out of control.

With an excellent cast's performance, a sharp script and funny dialogues, this short becomes a wonderful and thoughtful film for gay and straight people. 

The short film has also received awards in many festivals.
