Animated Films starring Colman Domingo and Brian Cox at HollyShorts Film Festival – Awardsdaily

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 28, 2022) – The Oscar®-qualified HollyShorts Film Festival proves once again that animation is the future of entertainment. The 18th edition, which will take place from August 11 to 20, 2022 at TCL Chinese 6 Theaters, unveiled its diverse selection of animated shorts, including Emmy nominee Colman Domingo’s New Moon.

New Moon, written by and starring Colman Domingo, follows a surreal, imaginative journey of a young boy and his mother in pursuit of their inner-city dreams. Adapted from his solo play, “A Boy and His Soul”, this short film also provides insight into Domingo’s upbringing, serving as “a love letter to the mothers and sons of West Philly and Black”. Other stars include Aaron Hughes’ Five Hundred, starring Emmy-nominated 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), with Tim Blake Nelson (Nightmare Alley, Watchmen, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs); Scales by Joseph Pierce (Cannes 2022 Selection); The Castro Sisters, Domenica and Constanza Castro’s We Are Here (Sundance Selection 2022); as well as Saint Android by Lukas von Berg (Cannes Cinéfondation 2021), among others.
