Based in Portland, OR, Alberta Poon is a first-generation Chinese-American director and screenwriter known for her surreal-like imagery, lush soundscapes, and fondness for vibrant punches of color—creating bold worlds that embody beauty and humor in a fun and refreshing light. Alberta’s work explores the themes of the Asian-American diaspora experience using comedy to grab the attention of people that might otherwise tune out.
Her multifaceted background as a musician, editor, and videographer fosters rich and collaborative environments while also positively impacting the rhythm and emotion behind her storytelling. A common thread that ties her work together is inclusivity within underrepresented communities, both in front and behind the camera.
Alberta’s films have screened in the Bend Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festival, SPLIFF, Local Sightings Film Festival, and have been featured in Vogue (twice), RollingStone, and Broccoli Magazine. Her commercial directing work includes campaigns for Nike, Adidas, TikTok, Society Nine, Google, and She Shreds Media which have been featured by Ads of the World, Campaign US, and Free the Work.
She is available for hire as a freelance director.
