Writer, Director, and Producer
Discovering her love of stories and art at a young age led Sunny to pursue film in university, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree at Capilano University in Vancouver and a Master’s Degree in International Studies in Media, Power, and Diversity in Barcelona, Spain. She has been passionate about storytelling since a young age, finishing her first novel at the age of 9. Her love of storytelling combined with visual arts naturally led her to filmmaking. Other than immersing herself in the inspiring world of filmmaking, Sunny is an avid traveler, outdoor enthusiast, and literature lover.
She has written and directed six short films to date that have screened at various festivals internationally. Her short film 'The Yellow Wallpaper' was the recipient of the Experimental Visions Audience Award at NFFTY. 'Ataraxia', funded by BC Arts Council premiered at the Oscar-Qualifying festival Hollyshorts 2022. 'Millie Did It' is on CBC Reflections. Her latest short 'Hope is the Thing with Feathers', funded by BC Arts Council, screened at Reelworld Festival 2023.
Currently, Sunny is based in Vancouver, Canada and is developing her first feature film.
