Her cinematography has spanned the globe–having shot films in Italy, South Africa, Thailand, Japan, China, Russia and Vietnam–as well as all over the United States.
Features and documentaries shot by Quyen have appeared at Sundance, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca, South by Southwest, and Telluride, among many others. Her most recent short film, SMILF, won the 2015 Sundance Jury Award for US Fiction.
