Nix is a Bay Area-based filmmaker focusing on short-form documentaries highlighting stories of BIPOC artists and activists, Filipinos in the diaspora, and trans experience. At age 18, she immigrated from the Philippines to the United States. She later received her BA degree in Film and TV Production at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. The events of the 2016 elections inspired her to work as a documentarian and labor organizer for Unite Here Local 2, San Francisco’s hotel and restaurant labor union. She made short documentaries on workers’ rights, which helped influence politicians and stakeholders, and contributed to winning a 61-day strike against the Marriott Corporation. Now she is an independent documentarian working primarily with grassroots organizations in the Bay Area. She is also the Program and Communications Coordinator for the SOMA Pilipinas Filipino Heritage Cultural District.
