GUSSY, Osborn’s most recent short, is an experimental queer horror film about boyhood and monsters. It premiered as one of eleven American short films presented at Champs-Élysées Film Festival in Paris, before continuing onto Fantasia for its North American premiere, and a global festival run throughout 2022.

In 2019, Osborn was invited to International Film Festival Rotterdam as a guest programmer, curating a special slate of films about memes and other moving images on social media. They also served on the Shorts Jury for Sheffield Doc/Fest later that year.
Osborn’s writing has been published in The New York Times, Vice, and Talkhouse, and received honors from Sundance Institute, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, and ScreenCraft.
