MIKE SHUM | Filmmaker

Mike Shum (b. Denver, CO, 1985) is a filmmaker who specializes in cinematography and journalism. Shum’s work explores the ways in which we perceive and define home within contexts of historical and cultural struggle. Growing up a son of Hong Kong immigrants, Shum seeks to relate his own struggle through his body of work. 

Most recently, Shum was the writer-director and producer on the Frontline | PBS post-election special collaboration, American Voices. The broadcast film is an excerpt of a long-term project following people in the United States as they live through the COVID19 Pandemic. 

​In addition to these collaborations, Shum works with renowned media organizations like BBC, Al Jazeera Witness, Time Magazine, and National Geographic.
