ENSPIRE Contributor: Claya Davis
In honor of the annual Huluween, 20th Digital Studio announces they will be their third season of Bite Size Halloween spooky shorts on the streaming platform. Debuting on Hulu on October 1st, this year’s collection of 20 shorts will highlight diverse rising filmmakers and uniquely blend traditional genres like horror, sci-fi, thriller, and comedy.
The third season of Bite Size Halloween promises to promote representation and inclusion by featuring works by a diverse range of filmmakers, such as Nuhash Humayun (“Moshari,” SXSW Grand Jury Prize), Sam Max (“Chaperone,” Sundance), Michelle Krusiec (“Bite,” AFI DWW), Zoey Martinson (“Cupids,” Tribeca), and many more.
2023’s Bite Size Halloween also features location and subject diversity. They shot 20 short films between seven different countries and each commented on topical issues like racism, gender, parenthood, sexuality, and identity.
This year’s lineup also includes on-screen performances by some familiar faces. For example, SNATCHED (directed by Michael Schwartz) stars Tatiana Maslany (“She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law”), Brendan Hines (“Locke & Key”), and Misha Osherovich (“Freaky”) plays their son.
“As we launch the first feature films developed with our incredibly talented Bite-Size Halloween filmmaker alums, we are thrilled to introduce the next wave of dynamic filmmaking talent and their ingenious short films. We take great pride in showcasing these vital, diverse voices and their very personal twists on horror, thriller, and sci-fi,” comments David Worthen Brooks, SVP of 20th Digital Studio.
20th Digital Studio’s short film program desires to grow the careers of diverse creatives and support the work of artists in the film industry by ultimately expanding their shorts into full-length features. Beginning in October, elongated versions of “Grimcutty” (John William Ross) and “Matriarch” (Ben Steiner) will usher in the next phase of this program by premiering on Hulu.
