Tan Chui Mui graduated from Multimedia University with a Bachelor Degree of Multimedia in Animation & Film in 2002. Since then, she has emerged as one of the most monitored young filmmakers in the international film festival scene. Her short films have won numerous prizes and awards in European festivals and her first full-length feature film ‘Love Conquers All’ won multiple new director’s awards in the Rotterdam International Film Festival as well as Busan International Film Festival in 2006. Other than directing her own films, Chui Mui also produces films by other Malaysian independent filmmakers such as James Lee, Amir Muhammad and Liew Seng Tat. Her work is characterized by a poetic sensibility borne out of her small town upbringing and a keen eye for stories based on personal growth and redemption.
