TOY LEI has had a fascination with action films ever since her parents took her to Chinatown and watched kung-fu movies every Saturday afternoon as a kid. After lamenting the lack of roles for Asian females over 30, she began writing, directing and producing her own projects. Her directorial debut, THE WEDDING, won her the Top 5 Women Filmmakers award from the Asian-American Film Lab and NY Women in Film/Television. 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 several Awards of Merit from the highly competitive Accolade Competition and the Maverick Movie Award for Stunts. The film opened at the coveted Etheria Film Night. She has now expanded BOXER into a feature and has signed on Kristina Reed, a two-time Oscar winner, as Consulting Producer. Toy has just finished attending the 2019 NYWIFT FS2P directing program in New York to support the feature.
