Hong Anh Nguyen, director and editor

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


Exploring the crossovers of moving images and performing arts, she thrives to amplify underrepresented female voices, cultural and generational tension 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. Hồng Anh is currently directing Saigon Kiss, a short film that explores the intimate relationship between two Vietnamese queer women on a motorbike ride. 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.

She is a fellow of the Kyoto Filmmakers Lab 2022.
