Cassiah is an award-winning director, with her award-winning BFI Network British/Indian horror short Catch A Butcher  screening at multiple BAFTA-qualifying festivals in 2021 and 2022.  She recently directed a BBC Studios Drama Productions short film The Pink Pill, written by Sorcha Kurien-Walsh, which is currently on the festival circuit.


Cassiah's feature The Wildness was selected for the Film London PFM in 2021, and she was also selected for Storiculture's 'Making a Myth' feature lab for a feature version of Catch a Butcher in Goa, India, in 2022.


Most recently, Cassiah was a Trainee Director on the AppleTV/60Forty series Hijack in 2023. She is currently developing her debut feature film projects, including one with the BFI, and one slated for production in 2024. 

As a director, Cassiah is motivated to tell stories through a genre lens, and often her work explores the projection of femininity, the subversion of typical female roles, and dual heritage/identity. She has been mentored by directors Gurinder Chadha OBE, Claire McCarthy and Jim Field Smith. 


Cassiah also directs music videos (CASA award nominated) and promotional films for clients.
