biography

Sharon graduated with a Film & Animation degree from Multimedia University in 2001. Her film career started off in distribution where she was the Marketing Executive at Buena Vista Columbia Tristar Films (M) Sdn. Bhd. She was an integral member of the team responsible for gaining the largest film market share of the Malaysian market in 2003.

Having already been exposed to the commercial side of film, she pursued a master degree in European cultural policy & management in the UK and focused her research on film policies, funding and independent cinemas.

She has held several internships and voluntary positions with film organisations and festivals including Screen WM, Independent Cinema Office, Sheffield Documentary Film Festival and Film Education.

In What City Does It Live? is her first feature film as a producer.
