Pronouns: They/Them/Theirs

With a background in acting and theatre, Janine Anne Uyanga is a passionate filmmaker based in Los Angeles that is determined to make art that allows everyone to feel seen. 

Within every project, they aim to turn their own adversities into creativity. Janine’s first short film, Hey Danny, touches on the subject of sexual assault amongst the lives of adolescents. Appeal, their first experimental short, explores body positivity and human sexuality. Justice Delayed deals with the personal impact of racial profiling in the black community. In 2021, Janine created and directed a Black History Month mini-series, Picture Day, for client L.O.L. Surprise's YouTube channel. The first ever narrative series engaged with young Black girls tackling mom & daughter hair conversations. 

Their main concern as a director is creating an inclusive environment and space in this industry for people of color and those in the LGBTQ community along with showcasing our neglected stories.
