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 works now as a director, producer, and writer, based in Los Angeles. She is a co-producer with Walking Iris Media, and often serves as a film festival juror, panelist, and story consultant for documentary films.
She was a staff member of the Documentary Film Program at Sundance Institute from 2015-2020.

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.
