Kate Tsang is an award-winning writer/director based in Los Angeles. Her short film “So You’ve Grown Attached” was a national finalist for the Student Academy Award, won Best Narrative Short at San Francisco International Film Festival, and was nationally broadcast on PBS. She’s currently in production on a cartoon short called "Welcome to Doozy" about the wild adventures of two best girl friends who happen to be a fox and an a rabbit. She is also developing her first feature film Something’s Wrong with Me, a modern day fairy tale about a tabloid talk show host who discovers he’s slowly turning into a tree.
Kate spent the first decade of her life bouncing between the sleepy suburbs of California and the hectic city of Hong Kong. In her teenage years, she was inspired by Dana Scully from The X-Files to become a medical examiner so she shadowed local CSI officers and morticians to prep herself for a gory future. All that changed when she took her first film class at UC San Diego, and consequently broke her mother’s heart by deciding to pursue a career in the arts. Kate earned an MFA from NYU’s prestigious film program where she won awards from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and National Board of Review for her work. Her mom has since forgiven her.
