As a graduate from San Francisco Arts Institute with a Bachelors in Fine Art Film, Shine Louise Houston has always had unique vision. Her signature cinematic style is best known for its honest and charismatic depictions of queer desire. She is the recipient of the Harvey Milk “Sylvester Pride in the Arts” Award for her portrayal of honest and diverse sexuality, and most notably seen in and its cast of queer and trans performers, people of color, and varying bodies and abilities. Her films have screened across the world, spanning LGBTQ festivals like Frameline and Outfest to Wonderlust Helsinki (awarded by the Finnish association for Sexology), film the British Film Institute, and the Tate Modern London, as well as popular media including HBO, the BBC, and Amazon’s Emmy Award-winning TV series Transparent, and have been presented at academic institutions such as Princeton University and the American Studies Association Conference.

Shine considers her best art project to be that of creating Pink and White Productions, a sustainable business that can enable the creative vision of many filmmakers to come.
