Miida Headshot 2022.8 horizontal sm.jpg

Miida Chu is a writer-director of trans experience in parallel universes. Through thought experiments, she writes high concept romantic fantasies that alter the world just so slightly to question our basic assumptions about bodies and souls.


Her short film EUREKA won the prestigious Golden Reel Award at the 38th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, which qualified the film for award consideration for the 2023 Academy Award. She is a finalist of the Warner Brothers 100 Short Film Initiative. Her feature script, OBLIVION, was a semi-finalist at the 2021 Outfest Screenwriting Lab and a Quarter-finalist at the 2021 ScreenCraft Feature Competition. Miida holds a BA in philosophy from New York University and an MFA in directing from American Film Institute. She was accepted to UCLA’s PhD program in philosophy, but she's glad she didn’t fall into that parallel universe.
