Hong Anh Nguyen graduated from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh with a BA (hons) in Theatre and Film.
As of 2020, Hong Anh is a recipient of the British Council Arts Grant Vietnam to direct the movement film GAP | GẶP in collaboration with the performance artist Harry Maberly and the Vietnamese performer Dan Ni.
Focusing on the crossovers of moving images and performing arts, she is particularly interested in exploring underrepresented female voices, cultural and generational tension and the intersectionality of identities – themes embedded in her upbringing as a queer Vietnamese in Germany.
Hong Anh’s recent directorial work on Harry Maberly’s It’s me, I’m Cathy! and Babooshka has been screened at the Edinburgh Art Festival 2019.
Her latest short film Amber Blue premiered at the Scottish Queer International Film Festival in Glasgow and has screened at the International Paris Cineffable, Berlin Feminist Film Week, New York YoungFilmmakers and Montreal Feminist Film Festival.
She is developing her next short film Saigon Kiss which will be shot in Vietnam with the support from the Goethe Institute.
She is currently based in Ho Chi Minh City and Frankfurt am Main.
