SPECIAL GUEST: David Chai
Growing up in Sydney, Australia, David studied acting at the Actor’s Center before finding his real calling behind the camera. His first break was working for a commercial editing house, before completing a Bachelor in Film at the University of Technology, Sydney. As an editor, he has edited three features, won a Best Editing award for a short film “Blind Date”, and co-edited the Austin best documentary winner “WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception”. David worked for major post houses Technicolor and Deluxe in New York, working on many films including “The Devil Wears Prada”, and Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock”. As a Colorist, David has color corrected features, documentaries, shorts, music videos and fashion shows for Gucci, Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham and more.
David’s first feature as Writer / Director is Siji:Driver which won the Best Feature Film and Best Original Score awards at the 21st Long Island International Film Expo 2018. David was also nominated for Best Director. He has also directed a bilingual TV pilot called Fashion City, short films, commercials, TV programs, and live events. He is an alumnus of ScreenwritingU and has written multiple high-concept screenplays.
“I love powerful, emotionally satisfying stories that bring a sense of wonder and magic, while keeping a pulse on the core values of integrity and kindness. I believe that Movies and Television are the perfect intersection of art and commerce and have the power to change the world.”

Katra Film Series is dedicated to discovery, exhibition and promotion of quality emerging cinema, providing a platform for independent filmmakers to showcase their work in front of a live audience and to network with likeminded industry professionals. Every season we curate a selection of quality films, web series and digital works where the audience votes for one project to advance to the final rounds. Regardless of who wins each season all works will be considered for the Year-End Grand Finale Event where the top works will compete for over 10K in prizes at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Brooklyn, NY.
Changing Face International Film Festival aims to encourage diverse content from diverse creators. CFIFF was started as a way to bring together filmmakers from all over the world to celebrate each others work and to create a festival that was supportive of screenplays and screenwriters. Their goal for 2019 is to continue to create opportunities for wonderful filmmakers.
