Jacqueline CHAN Portrait

Jacqueline CHAN is a recent graduate of UCLA’s MFA program. In 2017, she obtained her degrees in Visual Arts – Media and Art History from UC San Diego, where she studied under filmmakers of the French New Wave, and grounded her film practice in experimental modes. Born and raised in the minority-majority city of San Francisco, she is interested in the stories of those around her—whose lives are so vivid but are never seen. She hopes to encapsulate a cinema that is at once unique to a kind of Asian-American experience and yet universally and emotionally resonant. Her short film Fishbowl was selected for the 3rd MulanIFF Fountainhead.
