Rachel Kwan is a BC-based director, writer, and overall content creator. Graduate of the Motion Picture Arts Program at Capilano University, Rachel is driven by her desire to bring BIPOC voices to the forefront as well as her lifelong love of film. Known for her cinematic films and dramatic screenplays, Rachel strives for artistic excellence no matter the medium.
Whether its commercial or feature length, she believes that every moment is purposeful, and that an attention to detail is the glue to any narrative. Rachel is fuelled by collaborative team environments and is in perpetual search for new experiences and perspectives to add to her repertoire. In the past she has had her own section in the Richmond News as a photojournalist/writer. In 2019, Rachel made the Top 40 in the Crazy 8s Film competition for her coming-of-age film “In Your Shoes.”
Aside from her freelance work, Rachel is an absolute film buff, comic book hoarder, and craft beer enthusiast. She is highly ambitious in everything that she does, whether that is competitive sports or all you can eat sushi. Though just five-foot-one, she is up for any challenge and looks to explore her ever-expanding comfort zone. If you would like to speak with her, she is most likely hanging out at the local movie theatre. Or just e-mail her, that works too.
