Hi, I am Q. Lei.

I am a filmmaker and curator based between Berlin, Germany and Shenzhen, China. I grew up in Shenzhen, which was only a tiny village adjacent to Hong Kong 40 years ago, but is now known to the world as the “Silicon Valley of China.”

Welcome to my creative album.

The tech-art spotlight shone on Shenzhen this spring, a city once known for electronics manufacturing, the Maker Movement, and in recent years, as the “Silicon Valley of China.” In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Shenzhen, the Shenzhen Futian District Government and the Huaqiangbei Street Office collaborated with Berlin-based Chinese curator Q. Lei and digital artists from around the world in putting forth the first Shenzhen Digital Art Festival in the booming Asian tech hub. Shenzhen Digital Art Festival was part of the 15th China International Cultural Industry Fair.
