Tracy Dong

Tracy Dong graduated from Beijing Film Academy. In 2008, she founded 8090 studio . She started to make documentary in 2010 with a DV. Her work In Character, originally entitled Smile, had initially been designed to reflect the living conditions of the students of Beijing Film Academy, which was then transformed to the present edition of In Character now. To say the making of In Character is a difficult one is an understatement. Dong handled everything herself, from shooting, editing, screenplay, festival applications, to designing posters. It is as much a learning process as the making of a film. Fortunately, the title was accepted to Sundance-CNEX Documentary Forum, which opened doors to independent documentary market for her. With the assistance from friends in film, the title was accepted by Göteborg Film Festival, one of the most prestigious film events in Northern Europe, and was premiered at the same festival on January, 30th in 2018.
