Chris Osborn is a director and editor based in New York.
His most recent short, TRUE BLUE, premiered at Maryland Film Festival in 2017 and won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Short at Indie Memphis later that year.
Osborn's previous short, SISTERS, toured film festivals across the country and earned a Vimeo Staff Pick. Filmmaker Magazine called it “a study in abstract horror and mental illness… [that] earns its high-strung pathos.”
He is currently developing his first feature, an atmospheric horror film about witches and rural America.
Beyond his directorial work, Osborn has edited acclaimed music videos for bands such as Beach House and Zola Jesus. He co-produced LACE CRATER, Harrison Atkins’ feature debut, which premiered at TIFF and was released theatrically in July 2016.
Both the Sundance Institute and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have recognized Osborn’s writing, as a semifinalist for the Sundance Screenwriting Lab and quarterfinalist for the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting, respectively.
Osborn is also the creator and curator of D E E P, a monthly screening series of new experimental cinema unearthed from the dark parts of the internet.
He was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and has been making films since he was ten years old.
