    BiographyCrystal Kayiza

    As a first generation Ugandan American, Crystal’s primary focus as a director is on telling stories of African diaspora.

    A strong example of that, Crystal’s first film All That Remains, which profiles Boley, Oklahoma, one of the nation's last all-black towns, won an Heartland Emmy in 2012. Since then, she has received various other accolades including being named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film.” Her film, Edgecombe, was an official selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival where it was acquired for distribution by POV. Her following film See You Next Time, was an official selection of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and was distributed by the New Yorker.

    Her short narrative film, Rest Stop, was the winner of the 2020 Tribeca CHANEL Through Her Lens program grant and premiered at TIFF in 2022. She is currently in pre-production on her first non-fiction feature film, which received the 2021 Creative Capital Award.

    Originally raised in Oklahoma, she now lives in Brooklyn where she continues to work on stories that cross generations and landscapes while staying close to her roots.
