Sylvia Ray is an award-winning Chicana/Korean-American director and a Satellite Collective Fellow. Born and raised in Barstow, CA, Sylvia's passion for storytelling was nurtured by her parents, who watched Star Trek and bootleg Korean dramas in separate rooms.
Sylvia's work emanates a fun and feminine energy, intertwining themes of empowerment, identity, and navigating through grief. Her dark comedy, PREGGERS, garnered acclaim, earning the Best Comedy Short award at the Arizona International Film Festival and a screening at The Academy through the LatinX InFocus program at New Filmmakers LA. Sylvia was chosen for HBO's Tomorrow's Filmmaker's Today program, where her film LEN(N)Y streamed to audiences on Pantaya and DISH! Latino.
Based in Los Angeles, Sylvia draws inspiration from her upbringing in a desert town, her international travels, and her experience in fashion. Sylvia is driven to create a positive impact in BIPOC representation both in front of and behind the camera.
