Georgia Fu was born in Taipei, Taiwan, but immigrated to California with her parents when she was two years old. She found cinema as a way into understanding American culture, and ever since has had an avid passion for seeing life through the lens of film.

For her undergraduate degree, she attended New York University's (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts for Cinema Studies with a minor in East Asian Studies. In college, she gained valuable film experience working for the production company ThinkFilm and producer Barbara De Fina (GOODFELLAS). After college, she spent more than a year in Taiwan taking on the important task of relearning her native language, Chinese, at National Taiwan University.

After Taiwan she was able to continue her passion for moving around the world, living in Paris and Hong Kong, while working at the photo desk at the International Herald Tribune. After her stint in journalism, she returned to her love of film by pursing her graduate degree at NYU's Tisch Asia in Singapore.

While at Tisch Asia, she made the short film GIGANTIC (2012), which screened at the Slamdance Film Festival and Chicago International Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Gold Hugo Award for Best Short Film. Her latest project, her Taiwan-shot NYU grad thesis film MISS WORLD, is currently traveling the festival circuit.

Fu is also completing a photo project on incarceration under the guidance of the VII Photo Masterclass in Berlin.

In addition to her own films, she has often worked as either editor or assistant director on countless productions around the world, in places as varied as Prague, Los Angeles, China, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Macau and Hong Kong.
