Cherish Perez de Tagle

As a director, Cherish is an all-rounder. Originally from the Philippines, via New York, Istanbul, Manchester and Japan, she has directed broadcast TV commercials, music videos, promos, short films and documentaries.

Her background in Social Anthropology and her international experience is reflected in her style and ability to capture the nuances of culture, emotions and human relationships.

Her 16mm short film, shot in Istanbul with DoP Phil Moreton, was the winner of the American Independent Film Festival award in July 2011, screened at Cannes Short Film Corner and other festivals including Leeds Film Festival, East End Film Festival and the London Turkish Film Festival 2011. Her latest LGBT short film is currently doing the festival circuit from the USA to Lithuania.

She now calls London home and is currently developing a British period feature.
