On the eve of a storm in rural Newfoundland, feuding fishermen are forced to set their conflicts aside when an emergency arises. An atmospheric short film by Justin Oakey, starring Joel Thomas Hynes, shot in the communities of Ochre Pit Cove and Northern Bay (Conception Bay).

Since its premiere at the Atlantic Film Festival, Flankers has been invited to screen on four continents (and counting). This past weekend it received a People’s Choice Award at Newfoundland’s own Nickel Independent Film Festival. Now the entire film is available to view online.

Please watch, share, and help spread the word!
