Hey there, I’m Christine W. Chen. I’m a producer, director, and entrepreneuer.
Christine Chen is an Academy qualified film producer, director and writer. She fell in love with capturing images and telling stories through film the first time she got her hands on an early addition VHS camcorder in 1993. After completing her first production, a film for her elementary school classmates that promoted the virtues of reading science fiction novels, Christine’s love of film turned into a life-long passion for writing, producing, and directing provocative and influential bodies of work that incorporated her perspectives from growing up as a first generation Asian-American in Colorado and her experiences in coming of age within a culture dominate in patriarchal tradition. Christine has a B.A. from Rice University as well as a MBA from the University of Texas McCombs. Christine's short films "A Bird's Nest" and "Ya Albi" were a Top 5 Louisiana Film Prize Finalists. They will be available on iTunes, Amazon, ShortsHD and continue to make the festival rounds. Funemployment, Christine's debut feature, produced under her banner Moth to Flame Films, is also currently being submitted to festivals. The company specializes in telling stories for business owners, artists, and families. Over the past seven years, their innovative approach to media and marketing assets has raised almost 1 million dollars in startup funding via crowd funding. Christine's favorite thing to do is being on set behind the camera, but when she is not filming, she also enjoys watching movies, eating, and empowering other female entrepreneuers.
I cannot imagine doing anything else, but telling stories

In 2010, I embarked on an exciting adventure to become a full-time filmmaker. I never looked back. This journey has not only helped me discover who I am but also taught me countless life lessons. Filmmaking has both fed and stroked my hunger to create. The more I do, the less I know it seems because I'm constantly on a path towards something greater and bigger than myself. Along the way, I have documented many of my experiences so that others may learn and rejoice from them as well.
