No More Productions is a partnership between Natalie Murao and Thea Loo, two filmmakers from Vancouver, BC. Together, they use filmmaking to tell authentic and impactful stories that focus on the Asian Canadian experience. They value diversity both in front of and behind the camera as part of their goal to expand the notion of Asian diasporic cinema. Their award-winning work has been exhibited at Sundance, TIFF Next Wave, Palm Springs ShortFest, and Telefilm’s Not Short on Talent Program at Clermont-Ferrand.

No More Productions acknowledges that Vancouver is located on the unceded ancestral lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) people.


Natalie Murao is a yonsei (fourth generation) Japanese Canadian filmmaker and educator. Her work explores themes of generational disconnect, personal memory, and communication. She aims to expand the notion of Asian diasporic cinema by creating an in-betweenness of styles that embody the diaspora itself.

She received a BFA in Film Production from Simon Fraser University. Her graduating film, FLOATING LIGHT (2017), won the ShortWork Student Award at Whistler Film Festival. Her follow-up film, NO MORE PARTIES (2020), played at festivals such as Sundance, TIFF Next Wave, and Palm Springs Shortfest. It was exhibited online through the digital TIFF Bell Lightbox. Her latest film and first documentary, BLUE GARDEN (2022), was selected for Telefilm Canada's Not Short on Talent program at Clermont-Ferrand and is now available to watch on CBC Gem.

Natalie has received mentorship through Sundance Ignite, VIFF Catalyst, and Experimental Forest Films. In tandem with filmmaking, she has facilitated educational programs for local institutes such as The Cinematheque and VIFF.
