TOY LEI has had a fascination with action films ever since her parents took her to Chinatown to watch them every Saturday afternoon as a kid. After lamenting the lack of roles for Asian females over 30, she began creating her own. Her directorial debut, THE WEDDING, won her an award from the Asian-American Film Lab and NYWIFT. BOXER, won not only Best Actress, Best Action and the Grand Prize at the 2015 Asian-American Film Lab 72-hr Shootout, but also won multiple Awards of Merit from the highly competitive Accolade Global Competition. It also won the Maverick Movie Award for Special Achievement in Stunts and a nomination from the Connect Film Fest for Best Drama. The film opened its fest run at the coveted Etheria Film Night and won Best Action. She has now expanded BOXER into a feature and has attached Kristina Reed, a two-time Oscar winner, as Consulting Producer.
