Writer Biography - Andrea Zapiain

Born in Mexico City, 1995, Andrea moved to Vancouver in January, 2017. She had always been aware of issues such as racism, sexism, and oppression, but moving away from home gave her a new perspective.
As a result, she wrote Alien Like You, her first short film in English. Before coming to Canada, she wrote, produced and directed eight short films, as well as a short documentary and a play, and was involved in various independent productions.

After completing the one year Writing for Film and Television
Program at VFS in December 2017, Andrea plans to go back to
Mexico City to complete her degree in Communication and is set
on writing and directing her final project. Afterwards, she plans to
move up north to pursue a career as a writer-director.
