Zandi Tisani is a Johannesburg-based filmmaker with a background in the production of fine art, styling and photography but maintains a strong focus on screenwriting.
Her understanding of constructing a narrative is married to a commitment to powerful imagery as exhibited in her short documentary ‘Highlands’, produced as part of the Encounters Documentary Film Festival Laboratory. In November 2015 Good cop Productions produced the pilot to her web series, People You May Know that she wrote, directed and starred in. The show reflects her interest in character driven stories that are constructed to express the various urban African identities that give Joburg its shape. The show was an official selection at Series Mania Paris 2017, and New York Television Festival 2017 where she was awarded a development deal from One X.
She is currently working in Johannesburg where she continues to direct branded content and television commercials with Arcade Content.
