Directing

Cassiah is a director, with her debut short film Polly (2017) winning at the Moondance International Film Festival in 2018. She completed her second short Woman of the Night in 2018; her third short Kindling in 2019; completed a lockdown short in 2020; and her upcoming BFI Network supported short Catch A Butcher is in post-production.

As a director, Cassiah is motivated to tell stories through a female lens, and often her work explores the projection of femininity, the subversion of typical female roles, and dual heritage/identity.

 

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