Li Lu is an award-winning filmmaker residing in Los Angeles, CA. She was born in Suzhou, China, and her family moved to the United States when she was five. Daughter of two physicists, Li discovered her passion in visual mediums - first through photography, then ultimately into filmmaking. Raised on all three coasts and graduating high school in Sugar Land, TX, Li received her BA from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, graduating cum laude.
“There Is a New World Somewhere” is her debut feature film. It won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature Film at the Boonies International Film Festival and Special Jury Award for Best First Feature at both the Las Vegas Film Festival and LA Asian Pacific Film Festival. Emerging Pictures distributed the film theatrically to 20 US cities and Gravitas Ventures distributed on VOD in 2016. Her teleplay "Razorhurst," about the seedy underbelly of street gangs in 1920s Sydney, Australia, won the Skyway Film Festival's Grand Jury Award for Best Teleplay and Pitch. Her work has been profiled in the New York Times, IndieWIRE, NPR, Bitch Magazine, IMDb, and Flavorwire.
A maker of both fiction and documentary films, she is focused on work that creates a positive social impact and defies stereotypes by expanding the representation of minorities.
