About Betsy


Betsy Tsai grew up mostly in Silicon Valley, California, and for some years in Brussels, Belgium. She is a directing alumna from the UCLA School of Theater, Film, & Television, and she also studied English Literature and International Conflict Resolution.

Betsy is a full-time staff member of the Documentary Film Program at Sundance Institute. She is an integral part of the Sundance Documentary Fund review and evaluation process, working directly with applicants, screeners, and fund panelists. She still works freelance as a director and producer in Los Angeles.

Emigration runs in her family. She speaks French adequately and Mandarin horridly. She enjoys exploring the inherent malfunctions of human communication and her own cultural dysphoria.
