Vivienne Shaw is a Taiwanese-American screenwriter and director based in Brooklyn, whose narrative interests tend to dwell within the intersection of all things female, queer, and Asian-American. She also likes funny stuff.

She is a recent graduate of the Columbia University Film MFA program where she received the Alfred P. Sloan Screenplay Award for her thesis feature script Killing Jar, which continued on to be a Sloan Grand Jury nominee as well as a SFFILM Sloan Science in Cinema Fellowship awardee. Vivienne is also the recipient of the 2023 Reel Sisters Microbudget Fellowship for her comedic short film 29 Hour Famine, currently in post-production. In addition to Vivienne's own projects, she has worked in development at multiple production companies, including ViacomCBS, Cinetic Media and Gamechanger Films, and has also served as a script reader for the former Sundance Asian-American Fellowship. Outside of film Vivienne also works in video art and projection design for theater, pursuing her continued interest in interactive storytelling. She received her BA from Wellesley College in computer science and cinema and media studies.

Prior to film school, Vivienne worked as a software engineer for several years. She is also an avid fan of horror video games, cats, mahjong, and team sports. These facts are unlikely to be relevant to why you are viewing her website, but she feels compelled to include them in a section labeled "About Me".
