JIANJIE LIN | Writer & Director
Jianjie aspired to be a scientist from a young age. But after obtaining a BE degree in bioinformatics, he realized that he was more passionate to decipher human existence than genetic codings.
He received an MFA degree from NYU Tisch School of the Arts Asia. His short films A VISIT, a black comedy about corruption and vanity, and GU, about a family’s last reunion at court, were screened at many international film festivals.
He is currently developing his debut feature film BLOOD AND WATER, for which he was selected by Berlinale Talents Tokyo, shortlisted by Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab, and won Richard Vague Production Fund (USA). It was also selected for TorinoFilmLab FeatureLab 2018, and won Best Talent Project at 2018 Shanghai IFF’s Project Market.
