Hong Anh Nguyen_headshot.jpg

Hồng Anh Nguyễn is a German-Vietnamese film director, born in Frankfurt am Main and currently based in HCMC.


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.


Hồng Anh’s work in Vietnam is closely linked to the LGBTQIA+ community in Saigon. From co-creating Melon, a YouTube channel for queer women, to capturing numerous drag performances by local drag artists.

She directed GAP | GẶP - a queer digital dance duet commissioned by the British Council Vietnam. Her first poetry publication [khát] funded by the Goethe Institute was released in December 2021. She is currently directing the short film Saigon Kiss, which tells the story of an intimate motorbike ride between two Vietnamese lesbians. Hồng Anh is also the co-creator of the pop culture channel &Nối.

She is a fellow of the Kyoto Filmmakers Lab 2022.
