Christopher Small (Czech Republic)

Christopher Small is a writer, festival programmer, and now filmmaker, born in Caerphilly, Wales and based in Prague, Czech Republic. After studying directing at film school at the University of South Wales in Newport, he got his start writing about movies online and in print for a number of well-known publications, a trade that gave him unfettered access to the world of film festivals for the first time. Now he works for several of those same festivals, including Locarno Film Festival. In 2019, he moved permanently to the Czech Republic, where he is a curator for Doc Alliance. He shot his first film Communists! on a shoestring budget late in 2018 and in early 2019, in locations scattered across South Wales and with a cast and crew of many friends. The film had its World Premiere in the Official International Competition at the 22nd edition of BAFICI in 2021. Christopher is an alumnus of Berlinale Talents and a member of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI).
