Miida Chu is a writer-director of trans experience in parallel universes. Her work explores characters wrestling with the conflict between self-image and societal expectations through high-concept settings that challenge assumptions about body and soul.
Her short film EUREKA won the prestigious Golden Reel Award at the 38th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, qualifying the film for consideration for the 2023 Academy Award. She was a finalist in the Warner Brothers 100 Short Film Initiative. Her feature script SOUND OF MY DREAMS was a quarterfinalist in the Academy Nicholl Fellowships. Her feature script OBLIVION was a semifinalist at the 2021 Outfest Screenwriting Lab. Miida holds a BA in philosophy from New York University and an MFA in directing from the American Film Institute. She was accepted to UCLA’s PhD program in philosophy, but we’re glad she didn’t fall into that parallel universe.
