Yung CHANG is a filmmaker based in Montreal, Canada. His parents are originally from Mainland China. CHANG’s mother grew-up in Taipei. CHANG’s interest in his Chinese culture brought him back to China where he made two award-winning films. The first, Up the Yangtze won a Taipei Golden Horse for Best Documentary in 2008, a Canadian Screen Award (Canada’s Oscar), and was nominated for Emmy and Independent Spirit awards. The film went on to play in hundreds of international film festivals including the prestigious Sundance Film Festival and was one of the top box office releases for an independent film in North America.

China Heavyweight was his follow-up feature in 2012. It premiered at Sundance and went on to play at international festivals and cinemas. It won the 2012 Taipei Golden Horse and is the most-widely screened social-issue documentary in China, having screened in over 200 cinemas across the country. It was partially supported by CNEX Foundation.

Yung CHANG is currently writing his first narrative feature, Eggplant, and is in development for future documentary projects. He attended the 2015 Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Lab with Eggplant. In 2013, CHANG was invited to become a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization behind the Oscars.
