— Bio —

Dinh Thai is an Asian-American director based in Los Angeles. He brings a youthful, multi-cultural viewpoint to his creative and energetic productions. His work blends visual style with realism, focusing on social media influencers, dialogue, comedy, celebrities, and storytelling — all with strong musical influences. Born in Vietnam, fled to France and finally settling in L.A., the 80s and 90s nurtured a fascinating cultural mix that strongly informs Dinh’s filmic approach and aesthetic. His commercial clients include Adidas, T-Mobile, and Toyota.

Dinh’s narrative work has aired on HBO and CINEMAX. Specifically, MONDAY, a short film he wrote and directed has garnished over 50 festival awards and nominations, including placing first in the inaugural HBO Asian Pacific American Visionaries competition, Best Director, Best Actor and Next Generation Filmmaker Award at the prestigious NBCU Shorts Festival, Best Direction at the New York Television Festival and Best Short Film at ITVFest.
