Yen Tan

Yen Tan (Writer/Director/Co-Editor) premiered the critically-acclaimed Pit Stop at Sundance 2013. It was nominated for a John Cassavetes Awards at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards. His previous feature, Ciao (2008), was a Queer Lion contender at Venice Film Festival. Yen also co-directed Until We Could (2014) with David Lowery, an Addy-winning PSA for Freedom to Marry that was narrated by Robin Wright and Ben Foster. Yen has been a fellow of Austin Film Society’s Artist Intensive, IFP’s Film Week, and Film Independent’s Fast Track. He was born and raised in Malaysia and now lives in Austin, where he also works as an award-winning key artdesigner for independent films and documentaries. He was profiled by director Maris Curran (Five Nights in Maine) for Adobe Create. 1985 is inspired by his Short of the Week of the same title, which won a Special Jury Award at SXSW 2016.
