Cindy Di Xin Has Found Her Voice

China native Cindy Di Xin is an award-winning filmmaker who has written and directed six short films. She earned master’s degrees in film production with an emphasis in directing from Chapman University in Orange County, California and The School of Visual Arts in New York City. Over the past three years, Cindy has been nominated and awarded at seventeen film festivals, including several Academy Award-qualifying festivals. In her films, she enjoys exploring family and multi-cultural dynamics from her unique, bi-cultural female perspective.

Cindy recently received the best director award at the IMDB qualified, Austin International Art Festival for her latest short Voiceless.

Voiceless is the sensational emotional journey of a high school student who admires her art teacher but has tragic experiences with her.  Cindy’s goal with this film was to support and comfort the victims of sexual assault.  

She comments, “This main character simply experiences her tragedy, just like one of the victims in our own lives. I want to use these 15 minutes to help my audience who are going through similar things feel less alone.”


Voiceless will screen at the New Jersey Film Festival on February 7, 2023, both in person and online.

Her other film currently on the festival circuit The day, at the Beach recently received the LA Film Festival’s awards for best director, best drama and best actor.

In the coming-of-age drama short, a teenage girl explores her family issues and how she must mature in light of what happened to her and her parents.

Cindy explains, “Growing up is always painful and uncomfortable. The reality or outcome is not always what we want, as this movie has demonstrated, and that is one aspect of growing up. We must adjust to losing people's love, care, and attention in our lives.”

And as we prepare for awards season 2023, we asked Cindy what her acceptance speech would be for these recent successes.  Her reply follows,

I would love to thank all of my crew, friends, and family. I couldn't have made these beautiful and fascinating pieces without their support and help. I am so glad that people have found some connections in my films and have given me all of their recognition and likes. These films are extremely important to me, and I am grateful to everyone who has assisted and supported me. I wish more and more people can see my works in the future. Thank you so much. 

What’s on the horizon for the talented young director? She’s currently writing her first feature film script based on The day, at the Beach.

She adds,  “I would also like to create another short family drama about an Asian immigrant family in the United States. Besides this, I hope to help other people to create and tell their stories. I hope we can hear more true voices from young filmmakers!”
