Hong Anh Nguyen, director and editor

Hồng Anh Nguyễn is a German-Vietnamese writer, director and editor, currently based in Ho Chi Minh City and Frankfurt am Main.


Focusing on the crossovers of moving images and performing arts, she is particularly interested in amplifying underrepresented female voices and exploring cultural and generational tensions and the intersectionality of identities – themes embedded in her upbringing as a queer Vietnamese in Germany.


Over the years, Hồng Anh has immersed herself in the  Vietnamese LGBTQIA+ community by capturing numerous drag performances by local drag artists.

Her work includes GAP | GẶP, a queer digital dance duet commissioned by the British Council Vietnam, and [khát], her first poetry publication, which was funded by the Goethe Institute. She is also the co-creator of &Nối, a talkshow about pop culture.

Most recently she has directed documentaries for EST, highlighting voices of modern Vietnamese women.


Her last short film, Amber Blue, premiered at the Scottish Queer International Film Festival and went on to screen at multiple festivals, including the Berlin Feminist Film Week and Cineffable Paris. She is a fellow of the Kyoto Filmmakers Lab 2022. 

Hồng Anh's new short film, Saigon Kiss, about an intimate encounter between two Vietnamese queer women, supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation and the Goethe Institute Ho Chi Minh City, is expected to premiere in autumn 2023.
