Tina (T. L.) Quach is an independent filmmaker now based in Los Angeles after studying Film Studies at UC Berkeley and working in production on major TV and Films in New York City. As an Asian American Writer-Director, she focuses on dynamic Commercial Content and Psychological Thriller Narratives. Drawing inspiration from Hitchcock and Asian Cinema, she aims to diversify and update the Thriller lens with a Female POC perspective, giving the audience an evoking visual experience that entertains, inspires, and educates.
Her short films had exhibited in a number of film festivals including the New York Asian American International Film Festival, Milwaukee Short Film Festival, Seattle Asian American Film Festival and the Pasadena Film Festival. Because of her work, Quach is now a member of the Alliance of Women Directors (AWD).
Through her membership at AWD, Quach is collaborating with other members in creating an Anthology Feature Film, THROUGH THE BLINDS. With the team of 7 women writer-directors, the seven short films explore the complexities of an American home with women-centric stories from the 1950s to 2019. After raising 123% of their development funds, the project is in early pre-production, continuing their mission to bring forth narratives of underrepresented communities.
Quach is also in the process of producing her first screenplay, CRAVE, into a feature film. Crave is a psychological horror film about Stockholm Syndrome, drawing influences from Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca and Zhang Yimou's Raise the Red Lantern. The screenplay was a Semifinalist for Scriptapalooza 2019, Quarterfinalist for ScreenCraft Spring 2019 Competition, and a Quarterfinalist for Final Draft's Big Break Screenplay Competition 2019.
