Vivian Hua 華婷婷 (she/they) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society. Vivian regularly shares stories of observations through the storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! and is a Co-Founder of the civil rights film series, The Seventh Art Stand.
In 2018, Vivian released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on the controversial topic of Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and in 2021, Vivian will begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.
Vivian is passionate about cultural space, sustainable practices, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures.
