Born in Singapore, Eva Tang has lived and studied in Hong Kong, London and China. When she was offered a scholarship from the Singapore Film Commission, she resigned from her journalist job for 5 years and went on to study film.

She was the first Singapore filmmaker who had her short film selected by Venice Film Festival in 2002.

Eva is a MA directing graduate of the National Film and Television School. Her student film Londres-London won the Governor Award of the Akira Kurosawa Memorial Short Film Competition. Japanese critic Inuhiko Yomota commented it is a beautiful film with an important theme bearing the style of Marguerite Duras.

It also won Best Artistic Film in Shanghai, Jury Recommendation at the Hong Kong Independent Short Film & Video Awards, and was nominated for Best Short Film at Hawaii and Bangkok International Film Festivals. The National Gallery of Art (USA) also picked it up for screening.

Eva was selected for the 2009 Berlinale Talent Campus and 2010 Taipei Golden Horse Film Academy led by Hou Hsiao-Hsien.
