HSFF 2022 – HollyShorts’ 18th Edition Proves Animation is the Future with Shorts Featuring Colman Domingo, Brian Cox and more

Colman Domingo’s new project “New Moon” will play on August 12 at the Oscar®-Qualifying Festival

New Moon, written by and starring Colman Domingo, follows an imaginative surrealist journey of a young boy and his mother chasing their inner city dreams. Adapted from his one-man play, “A Boy And His Soul,” this short also gives insight into Domingo’s upbringing, serving as a “love letter to West Philly and Black mothers and sons.” Other stellar standouts include Aaron Hughes’s Five Cents, starring Emmy Award-winner Brian Cox (Succession); Ninety-five Senses, directed by Jerusha Hess (Austenland, Napoleon Dynamite, Don Verdean) and Jared Hess (Minecraft, Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer (Minecraft, Masterminds, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life), featuring Tim Blake Nelson (Nightmare Alley, Watchmen, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs); Joseph Pierce’s Scale (Cannes Selection 2022); The Castro Sisters, Domenica and Constanza Castro’s We Are Here (Sundance Selection 2022); as well as Lukas von Berg’s Saint Android (Cannes Cinéfondation 2021), among others.
