Natalie Tsui (b. 1985, Hong Kong) is an experimental filmmaker living in Oakland, California.

A queer Asian American, Natalie's work revolves around identity, memory, and cultural hegemony. Her rhizomatic films resist linear rationalization, blurring lines between past and present, reality and artifice, right and wrong.

Natalie's films have screened in the National Queer Arts Festival, the SF International Asian American Film Festival, and the Festival de Cannes. She is the recipient of the Fotokem Graduate Student Grant, the Leo Diner Memorial Scholarship, and the John Gutmann Award.

Natalie received her B.A. in Film Studies and English from the University of California, Berkeley and is currently completing her M.F.A. in Cinema from San Francisco State University. Her thesis work, Persistence of Memory, is an experimental science fiction about a computer programmer who falls in love with her digital creation.
