Her talents also shine through in films like "Far Above the Starry Sky," a finalist at the Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival in China. She also scored for the short film "Human in the Box," screened at the Distinguished Xu Liaoyuan Museum of Modern Art, the first private museum of art and design in China. Yefan’s notable music composition credits include the short films “Diana”, “For Ellie”, “The Move”, “Holding On”, and “Dead Loop”, among others. She has also contributed her musical expertise for branding commercials, including Infinix Mobile and Wuling Motors.

To gain further experience in the film music industry, Yefan worked as a coordinator at White Bear Public Relations, a top PR firm specializing in PR and Event Promotion and management for film, TV, and interactive entertainment. During that time, she contributed to several successful awards campaigns, including Volker Bertelmann’s Oscar-winning “All Quiet on the Western Front,” Son Lux’s multiple-Oscar-winning “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and Stephanie Economou’s Grammy-winning “Assassin’s Creed: Dawn of Ragnarök,” the first-ever winner in the new category.
Yefan received her Master's degree in Music Composition for the Screen at Columbia College Chicago, where she had the opportunity to collaborate with students on their short films. In May 2022, she moved to LA to further pursue her passion for media scoring.
